Yesterday my oldest got mad at my youngest and pushed him making him fall to the ground. My husband demanded that the oldest apologize and then give the younger one a kiss. This sent my oldest into a conniption fit I haven't seen from him in a while. He stomped his feet, folded his arms and screamed that he would NOT kiss it better. this was a little shocking to me because that is a much lighter sentence than what I would have given him. His father again instructed that he give his brother a kiss (he had already apologized). Again the conniption fit occurred. So I inquired as to the reason he did not want to kiss his brother and this was his response...
"Because he fell on his bum and I don't want to have to kiss his butt!!!!"
Eh, fair enough.
