Why A didn't want to write...

Yesterday I read an Indian story to A. It was about a grandma telling his grandson to study for his exam. When I went to the kitchen I told A to get his notebook & pencil and write something and he said

No mamma, I don’t want to.

Why?

Because

Because??

Because I don’t want to.

Remember that grandma was telling that boy to study, so you have to study too now since you heard the story;-) Otherwise Im not going to read you any more stories.

But my teacher said not to study.

Yeah?

Yes, My teacher said not to study.

Who, Miss T?

No, Miss C said not to study.

Alright, let me call her and ask..

No, you can not call.

Why?

Because school is closed now.

Ok, I will call tomorrow then and ask Miss C if she said not to study.

No, you can’t call them tomorrow.

Why?

Because then they will say we are closing the school.

But I can still talk to them..

No, you can not.

Ok, now when you will go to school tomorrow, I will ask then.

No, Miss C will be sick tomorrow and She won’t be in the school. Only Mrs T will be there.

Ok, I will wait when Miss C is all better and come to school, then I will ask her.

Mamma, she is sick. She will come next year.

I was out of questions;-)

:-) Cute !! you cant win with this generation of kids :-)

Also just read your other post 'was I mean' and no you werent but I do agree with the other commentator that talking it out with him is the best way. Atleast in my case it works for a few days and he is back to his old self untill I blow my top again ;-)Can't live with them and can't live without them, hehehehe...

But yeah, I am curious too, does he read your blog ??

Very cute to read about it when you are not the parent having to send the kid to school! :)
