A Story in Politics and Growing Up…
I went out to dinner last night with my husband and two kids. While we waited for our food, I played a few games on the kids’ menu with my daughter, who’s four. At one point, I lost focus and accidentally won a game (Oh no!). Well, boy could you hear from just about anywhere in the restaurant, how upset she was and how, “It’s not fair!”
I calmly explained to her that she can’t win every game and that she will just have to try again next time. That wasn’t working, and the fit continued. So, I gently informed her that I was done playing games for the night, because “I don’t like to play games with people who get angry when they lose.” Without missing a beat, she replied, “Well, I don’t like to play games with people who win!”
I’m ready to register her with the Democrat party.
Or…maybe I’ll sign her up with the Wisconsin teachers’ union.
You see, as we grow and mature, we realize that there are better ways to handle our disagreements and differences. It’s just too bad that there are sooooo many adults who insist on acting like children. I get enough of that at home…really!
