Dealing with a toddler takes up all the energy I have. Now that he understands logic and needs an explanation for everything, I am facing one of the toughest exams in life. He always wants to know what will happen if he does not do what he is told to do. A couple of days ago, he was sitting on the chair with his cup of milk without drinking.
Me: You have to finish your milk fast.
S: What will happen if I do not drink fast?
Me: You will not have enough time to play.
S: What will happen if I do not have enough time to play?
Me: Well, you cannot play before taking a bath.
S: I do not want to play before taking a bath.
Me: Okay, you have to still finish your milk fast. You cannot sit there for half an hour.
S: What will happen if I sit here for half an hour?
Me: The milk will go cold and you will not feel like drinking anymore.
S: I want cold milk.
Me: Okay, it is already cold. So, why don’t you finish drinking it?
S: (fake crying) I want hot milk…….
and the questions are never ending…………………..
