When your three year old seems to know how to conduct themselves better.....There are moments when Hunter would catch my husband and I in heated debates and she'd run up to us saying, "stop, stop, stop......be calm, be kind to each other" (these are words that I would tell her on a daily basis after purposely being mean to her 10month old sister). And even a toddler can comprehend when kindness is needed, when kind words need to outweigh the bad. So I look at our real world and wonder why can't we, grown adults, take the cues that we teach our own children to heart?
