    You’re only nine, Michael. Aren’t you a little young yet to be acting like a surly teenager?

    Ellie gave him just what he wanted. Attention is one of the most addictive emotions there is!
    Just ask any Congressman or Senator.

    In my house, all it took was that special ‘look’ from mom, that got us moving.

    “Later”
    “Okay.”
    (After dinner)
    “Mom, can my friends come over?”
    “Later.”

    Nine years old – and still needs a warming on the seat of his pants.

    He is a little young to be taunting his Mother like that.

    ’Fraid not. Some of my kids or grandkids started in at nine. One was at her absolute peak (like the Himalayas) at age ten, and had mellowed somewhat by age sixteen. Now, the seven-year-old puts on a pretty good imitation. Sounds like Milton.

    He won this round even if he’s obeying. He got her to scream at him. When he said “Later” she should’ve turned around and looked him in the eye and said quietly, “What did you say? I don’t think I heard you clearly.” He’d get his butt moving fast!
