During housework this morning, I turned on some music. Not one minute into the first song, one kid came into the room saying, “I don’t wike this song. I don’t wike this song. I don’t WIKE. DIS. SONG!” When it was obvious I wasn’t going to rush and turn it off, he got a little more desperate, and started pleading it get turned off. “Pweeeeze? Someting ewse?” Then the other kid came in saying the same thing. Ugh, really? Not cool, kid. A few tears added for good measure. It was obviously going to be a thing, and since we all going to be together all day long, I submitted.
Here’s the offender:
Potential Reasons the kids didn’t like it:
- The stereo was too loud
- This was a new CD, so the songs weren’t familiar- therefore scary.
- The music was indeed unpalatable.
- Who are we kidding? To a two-year old, any reason is a good reason to throw a tantrum.
Would those two songs be deal breakers for you? Would you yell at your Mother if you heard them? Just curious.
