Edict of a dictator

We have a tiny little dictator in our family

Issuing her edicts with impunity of a child

Be quiet she says when the call for prayers sounds

Don’t use the phone when anyone picks up their’s

Don’t talk when I am talking she insists

Look at me, play with me when I demand

She’s just three and a half now, I often wonder

What she’ll be like when older?

Our little granddaughter, our tiny dictator!

  1. Hmmm! Children learn from imitation they say, and they have to be carefully taught – I think there are some songs on this??? There is a really great book to correct this in a hurry that I loved and it worked, it’s a classic – Dare to Discipline

    I read the original in the 70’s.
