A few weeks ago, my son was doing something he should not have done. I can’t remember exactly what it wS that he was doing wrong but I remember coming but the bedroom door and seeing him do something wrong.
Ith of the children were in the bedroom and I remeber getting so upset with my son I shouted
“Come on! You can’t stop?!”
Reading that, you might be there saying, well that sure is nothing. But like my grandmother would always say, “it not what you say but how you say it.”
I was really upset so I turned and went into the other bedroom to calm down. When I camse back, both of the children were laying on the bed embracing.
Then my daughter looked up at me and said, “Mommy you did the wrong thing. Don’t shout at (my brother)! You made (my brother) sad.”
Rebuke was delivered.
She was right.
I apologized to my son.
“a little child shall lead them”.
Indeed I was shown that reacting in frustration and anger is wrong.
What lessons have you been taught by little ones recently?
