Should We Beat Our Children?

The answer is Probably Not . . . although certain arguments could be made . . .

Please bear with us. Sam is currently testing the limits of everything in his universe.

If we say one, he says three. If we say now, he says in two minutes. One minute, he is sharing every toy he has with Aidan & Noah. The next, he is knocking them on the head with a block.

I asked him last night how many times Mommy & Daddy had to tell him to do something before he listened.

His answer?

Looking me straight in the eye, and without any hesitation, “Six.”
