Some Examples! Children hear every day tens of dos and don’ts. In their life you may say, years passed of hearing the same shot everyday.

My youngest grandkid hears everyday his grandma saying: “don’t play in the sitting room, play away from it. My youngest grandchild in the absence of grandma, took a pen, blue pen, and began to draw chaotic lines on the couches and the chairs in the living room. He’s three years, what can you do to him, as if he was saying, Look grandma, my good talent in the living room.
