The other day, I was in the kitchen and heard Brayden (3) talking to Kaitlyn (14 months). He has this tendency to parent her–something we are working on. I heard him telling her not to do something, then he said, “Say, ‘Yes, Brayden‘, ” pause “Say, ‘Yes, Brayden!’ ” The frustration was building. “Say, ‘Yes, Brayden‘! “
Yes, I started laughing. I composed myself and went in to the two of them and explained that Kaitlyn couldn’t say ‘Yes, Brayden‘ at this point in her vocabulary. That appeased him. I had to smile at the situation. It was one of those moments where I knew without a doubt that he understood what was supposed to happen after an instruction was given. He knew the importance of a response. He knew the reason behind me requiring that.
Our children of all ages understand more than we realize.
