Leaves little room for parent error.
I got two hear the two things that Daddy did “wrong” from a sad, regret filled Simon last night. He acknowledged his own error, but he made sure I knew that it was in response to the error of others. Including…
"He needed to take a time out. Not the type you give me and Charlie. Just some time away from everyone until he wasn’t so angry."
Damn!! I wanted to squeeze him and yell him the truth… Adults are really bad at it. We don’t get better. And yeah, we should all take time outs when we are angry, but we forget most of the time.
4 years old… Can move from toddler tantrum rage to adult reflection in under 5 minutes.
