Isaac jumping on swivel computer chair.
Mommy: Isaac, be careful. If you fall, you will get hurt and then Mommy will be so sad.
Isaac: Am I you’re best friend, Mama?
Mommy (while hugging him and taking him down from the chair) : Yes, you are my best friend.
Isaac (as he cheerfully walks away from the chair): Okay Mama … and I’m a good boy too!
Moral of the Story:
Tell your kids why you are guiding them – because you love them so very much – and they just might listen 🙂
