Children, Life, and Love: Today......my daughter stole something. Yes, my sweet, perfect, and innocent little 4 year old girl took something from a store that she did not pay for..... Now, to be fair, this thing that she stole couldn’t have been more than a dollar....two dollars max, but I found myself conflicted about what to do. Should I let it slide like no big deal? Should I throw it away and simply tell her why that is wrong? Or......should I do the hard thing and be the parent even though I knew it would be hard, embarrassing, and emotionally difficult for my daughter? You see in 2018 we have too many parents that care too much about being their children’s friend. They care too much about shielding them from the real world and real consequences....... It’s not my job to be my daughters friend....it’s my job to be her PARENT! So we got in the car and went back to the store. I held my daughters hand as we walked back to the same cash register that we had just been to, and I stood by her as her little hand sat that tiny little toy back on the counter. I helped her deal with her little tears and walked her through the correct way of saying she was sorry and explaining why this was a big deal that can not be repeated. I watched as other people looked at us....and how some had some resentment towards me for doing this at all. I also watched as my daughter learned a lesson.....I watched as she grew just a little at that moment.....I watched her do the right thing! She won’t be little like this for long.....so I choose to love her enough to teach her what a good person is and does. I am a Father......a Daddy.....a Teacher✔️ The END *For my 4 year old daughter doing the right thing and standing up for what’s right......that little toy still came home with us. This time purchased the RIGHT way! daughter daddysgirl daily life truth
