Subject: The blame game

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]
Date Posted: 14:05:16 07/25/21 Sun

Kids have a defence mechanism that leads them to blame others when in trouble. As a child I certainly tried to deflect responsibility for a wrong doing often enough, and my kids all have at various times over the years. I mean, what child does not want to avoid being put over Mum's or Dad's knee for a good spanking? Any port in a storm.

Have you heard any of the following excuses before from your kids? Perhaps there are some you can add.

He/she started it.
It was her fault.
He is lying, Mum
She should be spanked – not me
The dog did t*
Why is it always me in trouble?
I hate you, Dad!
School sucks anyway
Why do you always pick on me, Mum?

* thanks to Anna!
