This is usually the scenario when you are trying to be constructive and have a teaching moment with your kid and it usually ends in shattered expectations moments later.
However there are glimpses of hope.
Sometimes, and these moments are very rare, your child spits out a nugget of wisdom that you poured into them who knows when and it makes you believe that deep down they do listen (still, only sometimes).
Thank God for those glimpses of hope. They are true treasures.
Can I get an "Amen?"
