You ever ask your kid something along these lines, "What made you do that?!" or "Why would you think that was ok?"
We had an incident with Firecracker where we actually got an answer to these questions. Oh the light that was shed on the situation!
Last week, Firecracker got in trouble at school for throwing a pencil at a little boy across the room. After A LOT of patience and talking I finally got him to admit the reasoning.
Apparently, the other little boy had lent Firecracker a pencil. Firecracker was attempting to give the pencil back, but the weren't supposed to get out of their seats. So really, when you think about it, it was pretty self explanatory. Firecracker was not trying to be malicious. He was just trying to return a pencil.
Have a great day!
