I Listen to Little Boys & Girls

Interrupting can be a common problem with children.

This is a story from a mom talking on the phone in the car whose children kept interrupting.  She said, “I listen to little boys & girls who don’t interrupt their mommies on the phone.” Of course, they kept interrupting.  She pulled over, got out of the car and kept a watchful eye on them while she finished her conversation.  She got back in the car and heard “mommy, mommy, mommy.”

She replied empathetically, “This is so sad.  I only listen to little boys and girls who don’t interrupt their mommies.”  She took a breath, dead silence.  She drove all the way home in silence and the kids even fell asleep in the car!
