Dear Speech Gods,
Please, please, find it in your infinite wisdom to aid my son in learning a few words to use in place of whining and screaming when frustrated. I'm thinking "help", "stop", "down", "mad", "please".
I believe this is known in the parlance as "finding your words".
A Frazzled Mother
p.s. knitting, dowel, brick, cous-cous, bamboo, etc. are fabulous words. Thank you for those.
