1. Use your inside voice:
I get in trouble when I use my outside voice inside. Yet everyone is screaming at each other and talking over one another. Stop it.
2. No hitting:
Your “no hitting” rule is about not being a bully or not being mean. By asking me how I feel, you’ve made me see that hitting is a reaction to primal fear or jealousy. I assumed that by adulthood you’d grow out of that, right?
3. Play nice with the other children:
I’m supposed to share. If someone cries I’m supposed to comfort them. What is your favorite phrase? ”To have friends you have to be a friend.” You didn’t call it being politically correct. You called it being nice.
