"i will kill the spiders. i will share my fries with you when you’ve finished all yours and are still hungry. i won’t ever pop my collar. i will never be rude to your tummy- when i hear it growl and gurgle, i promise to bend down and reply respectfully.
Great parenting advice given to me by my Mom while watching me fight a battle with a 3 year old that was not worth fighting but I had to keep fighting it because I picked it. :) Now I choose my battles carefully.
