This weekend while our daughter was playing with her friend, her friend told her – "sometimes my Mommy & Daddy get frustrated and yell at me." Our daughter responded – "my parents don’t yell at me, they talk to me." We were feeling really good about this. Till today…
Monkey – sometimes my Mommy and Daddy get frustrated with me
Me – No, sweetie, we don’t.
Monkey – and then they…
Me – what do they do when they get frustrated?
Monkey – they do bad things.
Great! I dropped her at my mother in laws and told her to just go ahead and place the preemptive call to Child Protective Services.
