My son has recently picked up the phrase, “It’s not fair!” Unfortunately, he hasn’t fully grasped the concept of fairness and tends to use the phrase for anything that he doesn’t like. It’s driving me a little batty.
After dinner, the kids are supposed to bring their dishes back to the kitchen. “It’s not fair!”
When the kids are allowed to watch TV, they have to agree on a show. “It’s not fair!”
When told to return his sister’s toy, which she was playing with first. “It’s not fair!”
Not being allowed to play with the iPad all day long. “It’s not fair!”
Bedtime. “It’s not fair!”
Put your seat belt on or we’re not going anywhere. “It’s not fair!”
Please take turns on the swing. “It’s not fair!”
You get the picture right? It’s getting a bit ridiculous. No matter how many times I try to explain what “fair” is, he just doesn’t get it. I’m open to suggestions, what would you do?
