Talk about a good lesson in humility! When Kieran says that, I can only agree, apologise for shouting, and continue in a better way. While I certainly expect them to follow directions, I know this is much likelier (and more enjoyable for all) when I do so in a nice and/or playful way. I also know that Charlotte often just needs my attention. It's true that I cannot always give her all the attention she wants when she wants it, but if I take the time to give that attention when I can, she will respond better. Speaking politely in a softer voice, as I would want to addressed, also helps.
I suppose I'm doing something right if my son can remind me of this. By the grace of God this is improving. I thank God for letting my son remind me to follow the things I expect of my children. I wish I were perfect in this, but I trust in God's grace that I may improve.
