Gas is a natural process. What is dad going to do? Spank the intestinal symbiotes that actually produced the gas?
I jumped all over son-in-law about a grandkid knocking over a glass.
Grabbed SIL and dragged him to the garage and we smoked cigarettes and I asked if they had been buying new clothing for the boy because he was outgrowing stuff so fast?
The kid's arms are growing faster than his brain can adapt. Mistakes are going to happen! Explain to the child why it happened and suggest ways to game the process. Yelling at them accomplishes nothing.
I wish I had a do over on raising my own kids, for the stupid mistakes I made, but daughter says I'm making up for it with the grand-kids. And the sometimes vocal common sense I offer.
I don’t have my own... I’m just an aunt.
But don’t (within hearing of the kid) say, “he doesn’t behave” or “she won’t eat vegetables”....and then be upset when he doesn’t behave and she doesn’t eat vegetables....
