In some countries, I could be arrested for using this :
Papa did it!!!
Because he always laughs that "Mama can not painful".
I found some graffiti on Joy's Dora backpack and Joe was holding the exact same coloured colour pencils. I asked him if he did it and he said "yes". He couldn't tell me why.
And he knows very well he's only supposed to draw on paper.
We've gone through this before with both kids when Joy drew on my wall, my chairs and my bedsheet.
Can you draw on my wall? No!
Can you draw on my bed? No!
Can you draw on my table? No!
Can you draw on my chair? No!
Can you draw on your clothes? No!
Can you draw on my floor? No!
Can you draw on your face? No!
What will happen if you do that?
Joy : piak.
Joy : buttock.
And that's what Joe got.
** Incidentally, Pastor Daniel mentioned about using the rod of correction, during his sermon this weekend.
Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him. Proverbs 22:15
He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Proverbs 13:24
