24. You Don’t Tell Me No
I upset my, then 3-year-old, daughter. She stood at the foot of my bed, glaring at me, mumbling, “You don’t tell me no, you never tell me no, you will be sorry, you will see”.
I have never been so afraid of my child, or to fall asleep, as I was that night. She and I laugh about it now. (She turned out to be a bright, funny, well-adjusted person. No troubled youth).
