Storytelling Gone Wrong
When G. gets tired he sometimes hits us. Or he head-butts us on purpose and says "Owweee!"

And we talk about how you never hit. Or scratch. Or head-butt. Or bite. Or push. And he agrees. But he is still fascinated with violence and talks about it a lot.

The other day:

"Mommy hit Gabriel, yeah?"

Kiff looks at me, warning me not to give him a good reaction. I keep zipping up his jacket, calmly, and say: "No, we don't hit. Ever."

Then, a few days later, getting him into his pajamas: "Daddy hit Mommy, yeah? And Mommy fall down on the floor!". His eyes are big and credible.

"No, honey. We never hit. Ever. We use gentle touch."

Please don't say this at school!
