Leaving The Park

It was time to leave.
Mom was calling the kids to pile into the van.
Abby came to the van with a big stick. She had every intention of taking it home. Mom said, "No" and Abby started to whine and cry. Mom remembered that she had a few new skills up her sleeve so she opted for a choice.

"Honey, do you want to leave the stick behind that bush or that tree?"

Abby amazingly stopped crying and said, "Close your eyes Mommy, I want to hide it."

She hid it and they traveled home in relative peace.
The power of a choice.
