negotiation

傍晚,在客廳

媽媽:愷愷,快來一起收拾玩具,不然一會兒爸爸回來後可能會被地上的玩具絆倒呢!

愷愷:(將玩具推到一旁,空出一條小路)在這裡(沒有玩具的小路)走不就行嗎?

***

晚上,爺爺嫲嫲家

愷愷:一會兒我們是否坐爺爺的車回家?

媽媽:你不記得車子會噴黑煙嗎?還有,媽媽要做運動呢,你來陪我走走好嗎?

愷愷:但是我今天已做了運動!

媽媽:但是我今天還未做運動呢!

愷愷:你在這裡(爺爺嫲嫲家)做不就行嗎?

晚上,在餐廳

爸爸:這個甜品只有兩個雪糕球,這個是爸爸的,這個是媽媽的。(爸爸就是常常要這樣氣壞他才罷休)

愷愷:不可以!

爸爸:那麼這個是爸爸的,這個是愷愷的!

愷愷:不好!這個是愷愷的,這個是媽媽的,爸爸吃壽司!

這個孩子,長大後去參加辯論好了,聽說你爸爸也是辯論隊的隊員呢!

rafael is always negotiating now, and i think he's good at it as i could hardly give any counter-arguments at times. i can imagine it will get harder and harder to persuade/force him to do things he doesn't want. i don't mind negotiation and i actually welcome it as i want our family to be a democratic one (haha, maybe we can overturn our authoritative ruler by majority votes!). guess what i could do now is to try my best to instill good values in him and hope he would put his negotation skills to good use.

mac說得好動聽,我在家會凶狠狠的說:為什麼你包拗項!

amy教我,她一天到晚說NO,什麼都反對,如何才能溫嫻如amy呢?

孜媽:哈哈,可以盡量請別人替你做厭惡性工作,如氹/餵吃飯。:P
