When You Were Little…
"When you were little you used to… and Junior is just like you."
Generation stories have their place! Generation stories have their place–a happy place and an annoying place.
What are the words that your children might least like to hear?
What are the words your children might quickly learn to tune out?
"When you were little, we used to…"
Each generation of parents has their own "parenting" expert, their own ideas, their own nutrition, etc.
Your way of doing things is almost certainly not the new way of doing things.
That is one time children probably will not want to hear, "When you were little, we used to…"
"When you were little, you used to…" is a different story, however.
There is one time that children will usually enjoy this phrase. That is an old story of how cute they were, funny they were, or smart they were then.
They will particularly enjoy a pleasant tale that ends in, "And Junior is just like you were at that age."
