I wrote an article over at Minti about how to avoid the terrible 2’s by using redirection rather than always telling The Boy “no.” As I discussed it with Derek, he mentioned that mabe I had it a little off. Not unlike Derek to tell me I’m wrong AFTER I write an article.
D: Babe, he uses redirection on us.
K: What do you mean?
D: Haven’t you noticed lately that he draws your attention in one direction and that as soon as he has you confused, he runs off in the other direction to do exactly what he isn’t supposed to do?
D: Oh, yeah, he’s playing us. Watch.
With that the boy gave his dad a big kiss and a hug. As dad was enjoying the hug, The Boy leaned over and drank from dad’s glass. And with that, all of his gatorade was gone.
This kid is going to be the death of me.Share on Facebook
