Communication Breakdown

Whilst walking through Endcliffe Park today we saw a very frustrated toddler, who was on the verge of tears as he tried (unsuccessfully) to communicate something to his dad.

It made me remark that it was no wonder kids cry a lot, it must be incredibly difficult at that age, lacking the ability to express yourself and being unable to communicate even very basic ideas.

“What age is that?” retorted Mr TLC, “I thought all men from about 15 to 50 had that problem.”

Apparently so, Mr TLC Deliberate Misunderstanding.

    My youngest was a very unhappy baby, whose attitude was transformed when he learned to talk, even from the first word. We concluded that he’d been frustrated. He’s now 23 and extremely easy-going.
