A quick conversation with my son:
Shay: When I play chess with somebody I feel bad always winning, so I'll just stalemate instead.
Me: Ya, I've seen you do that a lot.
Me: I still don't think it's a good habit, Shay. It's okay to win. The more you win the easier it'll be for you to help other people win.
Me: The more you win, the better you'll be at winning and the more you'll know about how to win, so you'll be better at helping other people learn to win.
Shay: You're trying to give me a life lesson again, aren't you?
Me: Of course.
Shay: It worked.
You just never know which conversations are going to be the important ones.
So, regardless of whether or not your kids can communicate clearly, keep having them!
Hugs, smiles, and love!!
