Her Recent Quotes

“I don’t want to friend you”

Do you find this phrase familiar? This is one of the most common words children like to say. Recently, I noticed Sharlene is very fond of saying this phrase when she’s unhappy with us. She will utter these few words, fold her arms together and show us her angry face when we don’t allow her to do certain things or when she gets scolding from us. She must have learnt this from pre-school as none of us at home speak to her like this. On one occasion after she said this phrase to me, I asked her “Why you don’t want to friend mummy?” she replied furiously, “I’m angry, I don’t want to friend naughty mummy, I want to friend xxxxxxxxxxxxx” (she named a few of her school friends). Oh my, she prefers her friends than mummy now. But kids being kids, they don’t mean to hurt us with their words and they will soon forget what they’ve just said.
