The Secret

“Can I tell you the secret?”

Over the years as a mother, I’ve discovered that a few words and phrases are magic. This is one of them.

When my sons, Tyler (four) and Austin (three), are desperately trying to do something that they’re not able to do, and struggling mightily but not wanting to accept help, I ask “Can I tell you the secret?” This always gets their attention, and it almost always piques their interest enough to stop what they’re doing and let me show them how to do whatever it is they’re struggling with, such as putting together a puzzle or trying to figure out a new  Leapster game.
