The Cycle Of Back Talk

Remember as a child when you ‘back talked’ your parents?

You got in trouble and lectured.   You didn’t understand why you couldn’t speak your mind.

Remember as a parent when your child ‘back talked’ you?

And you couldn’t figure out where your children learned to talk like that.   And how dare  they speak to you like that.

Remember as a grandparent when that too adorable child back talked you, or better yet, their parent?

And you thought it wonderful that your grandchild was confident enough to know and speak their mind.
