You're Making Me Feel Stupid

This is what my 6yo told me today.

I asked him how, and he said that I was telling him what to do.

In other words, I was micro-managing him while he folded towels.

I learned how to do that from my own mother. I listened to how I talked to my kids a little more closely after that.

I'm thinking maybe I could be a little bit nicer when I'm angry.

I'm not saying that they didn't deserve every punishment that they got for breaking up a large piece of Styrofoam ALL OVER THE FREAKING HOUSE, but I probably didn't have to yell so much.
