The Crying Game

My little boy is starting to try getting his way by hitting us where it hurts most -- emotionally. Most of time, he cries because he did not get his way. But he's pretty selective to when to turn on the waterworks. I think we the parents are more subject to these emotional displays because he thinks we're more gullible.

He's actually a good and obedient boy, most of the time. I guess he's trying to test his limits. They don't call it the terrible threes for nothing. The important thing is that we know when to give in and when not to.
