Chatting With Lexi: On Being Fair

  1. I literally laughed out loud! I don’t have this problem with my 11 year old… But the 4 year old says it more than I care to hear it.
    Your conversational posts are the best! I love reading the things your kids say and your clever responses.
    This “not fair” speech is way better than my dad’s. I would say, “That’s not fair!” His reply, “Life ain’t fair.” Well let’s just say I would pout and stomp off to my room at those words.

    1. “Life ain’t fair!” is almost as bad as “Because I told you so!” Kids deserve real answers that show we have taken some thought before we answered.

      1. Oh yes! That was the other one. The good ole “Because I told you so!” I stay far,far, far away from those two phrases. Kids really need an explanation. They are people too and one day will be in charge of someone. I know I don’t want to be a boss telling my employees to do something simply because I said so. I could only imagine the look on my face if my boss told me that.
