One of the first things we taught Baby Swiss to say was, “help, please”.
(I think it’s a pretty popular phrase to teach little babies.)
We wanted her to learn that there are better ways to get things done than going to immediate cries of frustration.
Now, I hear “help, please” all day long.
It seems I’m smart enough to teach my kid how to ask for help, but I’m not sure when I’m going to learn to bypass my own cries of frustration in favor of a simple little plea.
