In another of those long days where everybody's nerves were already reaching the breaking point, MC pushed me.
I pushed her back. And I told her, 'do you like what you feel when I pushed you?'
She nodded no and immediately said that she's sorry.
I told her I forgive her. And I said I am sorry that I pushed her. I only wanted her to know what it feels. And to point it out to her that pushing is not a good thing to do, either to her friends and especially to adults.
I hope she got my point. Sometimes teaching our kids a lesson means giving them back what's worth.
