Convos With My 2 Year Old The Slide Disney

Whether it’s a slide, a pool, a tricycle or a first-ever taste of ice cream, sometimes kids refuse things that they’ll later spend the next few years of their lives begging us for incessantly.

Watch this wonderfully touching scenario that will seem oh so very familiar. (Except for the kid being an unshaven, fully-grown man part.)

As former kids, us parents know how much fun some things are probably going to be for our kids. There are times they leap right in before we can even tie their shoes properly. Other times they just run away.

Of course, it’s stupid to FORCE a kid to have fun, but at the same time you know that they only need to dip their toe in and they’ll soon be splashing around like the happiest little fish. Sometimes you happen to know this because they friggin’ did it yesterday! However, there are days when they’re the grim one-person jury shaking its little head and you’re the passionate attorney delivering an inspirational and compelling closing statement. We teach and nudge and encourage and use funny voices; we try to help them see how much fun it all could be.

    Well.. these used to be quite funny, but seem more and more staged. I just cannot believe that anyone would act this way towards his (or her) children. Not the “lets ride together” part, or the “wait, i’ll come get you” but the “it is about conquering your fears!”-part. That just feels so…

      Did you not catch the part where it was two grown men?

      Seriously though, I talk to my daughter like that. I don’t talk to her like she’s a baby and she understands what I say or asks me to say it differently.

    I talk to my son like that. About conquering fears and such.

    I have used the “brave…like Merida” line more than once. Love it!
