    Pretty Bad Behavior

    | MN, USA | Children, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

    (I am playing a game with a little girl, when a five-year-old boy comes up to me with another game.)

    Boy: “Will you play this with me?”

    Me: “I’m playing this game with [little girl] right now, but as soon as I’m done I’ll play that one with you, okay?

    Boy: “You’re pretty.”

    Me: “Thanks, but you’re still going to have to wait until I’m done. Nice try though.”

    Boy: “Aw. That always works when Daddy says it!”

    (We had a chat with his father about role-modelling healthy, non-manipulative behavior.)
