    Because I Said So!

    This is annoying. Why do parents use this phrase instead of giving a rational answer? Or if they don't know why, admit to not knowing and asking the other person to do it just because they asked nicely? And why am I annoyed by this? Because I have loved learning from a young age and my insatiable curiosity will not be satisfied with being shut up like that! So, should parents stop doing this? Because it is proportionately more annoying the older the child gets. Even a two year old can understand simplified explanations. Why not take advantage of the learning opportunity?



























    And don't reply with that phrase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They are saying that since they are the parent and you are the child, that they are the boss. They are saying that you need to obey them without arguing and asking questions.

    Because when you're trying to get all four kids sorted out and they start interrogating you about every little thing when you ask them to do something you don't have the time to get into a debate with the 9 year old, the 7 year old, the 5 year old and the nearly 4 year old. So the answer becomes "because I said so"

    Thank you for giving me a real answer. You could also tell them to go look up the reason if they are old enough. Or just claim that the reason is safety related and they should go look up the answers to their questions in a book! I asked my parents so many questions when I was little, that they eventually just had me read some children's encyclopedias. I then read some medical encyclopedias also. Maybe found out where babies come from a little early...
