The Father and the Interrupting Child

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 17-01-2007

It is important for fathers to remember that children forget or ignore the rules when they have something urgent to say. After all, it’s easy for a child to forget that other people have needs, too. You’ve probably already talked to your kids about when they should butt in (the house is on fire) and when they shouldn’t (she’s bored). But putting these principles into practice is easier said than done.
