“Not nice”

“Not nice,” you said.

Your teddy bear, “Ted-dee-boo” had just brushed your face.

Bedtime, and Ted-dee-boo got five minutes of being told, “not nice.”

A few nights later, one of your dolls hit another on the face, and you said, “hit face, not nice.” And then the doll got a stern talking to.

I would prefer you stay at home, and not have to go to day care. Because evidently you’re learning or being taught harsh words, and someone is being hit.

I can’t decide what would be worse… the knowledge that another kid may be hitting you, or you being the one doing the hitting.
