Yesterday, I refused a 3-year old sweets🍬 because he refused to greet me. He made a fuss about it and threw tantrums. Still, he refused to say good evening and I refused to buy him sweets.
This morning, as I stepped out, he was the first to greet me and asked me to buy him something on my way back.
For the kid: Learn to exchange pleasantries with elders. Courtesy demands it.
For me: Learn childlike simplicity. Don’t bear grudges. When the Sun is gone, so should your anger.
