A Homeschooler Mother's pre-warning to his 6 years old homeschooled son.
(I was in the toilet and he was not far away)
Me: We are going to start studies in 10 mins AND no whining when we begin! (He has the tendency to whine for the sake of whining. Just to show that he prefers to do other things then to study)
Ethaniel: Can I whine NOW?
Me: What did you say? *stretching my words a little, added with a touch of "I didn't hear you"* (Wanted to know if this child is THAT rebellious)
Good idea. Smart boy.
