Tuesdays with Jane: What Were You Thinking?

Posted in Jane Kise on August 23rd, 2011 by kidtelligent@gmail.com – 1 Comment

By definition, children aren’t mature. I think we often forget that as parents. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just reach inside their heads and move levers that would get them to do the smart thing? But no, they do incredibly stupid things such as leaving a half–eaten lunch in the bottom of their backpacks for a couple months, even though you’ve asked, “Could something possibly be rotting in your backpack?” And, when you ask, “Why didn’t you take care of that when I first noticed it?” they say, “I dunno…”

I’d do more hugging and less tugging.“

Or, is your child a controller, who’s had clear ideas of how the world should be run from just about Day One? How would you describe your child’s reaction to parenting?
