Say thank you, otherwise it will be worse …

I did not notice how another year flew by and my daughter Yulia was three. Literally in a matter of days, my flexible and good-natured child turned into an imperious little despot. – Give me the juice! She commanded. – Now! “Do you know the magic word?” I tried to call her to order. This phrase acted flawlessly on her older brother Alyosha, but Julia did not want to give in to her. “Are you a hundred, fooled?” Was her answer. – Give me si-xi-s!

His mother, among the three other parents accompanying the children on an excursion, saw this with her own eyes and was simply depressed. “I don’t know what it is with him today,” she told the teacher. “Actually, he’s a very educated boy with me, he knows how to behave.” Even the most educated children at times admit terrible lapses. Often this happens when a child confronts a choice: follow already learned rules or a living example of an uneducated friend. If someone in the group begins to laugh at the new one and tease him, others willingly join, although they know that this is not good. If one of the children behaves ugly at food, he will surely have followers. Do not be surprised if your child is among them. This does not mean that he did not remember anything from your lessons.
