So my 5 year old daughter said this past week "I wish I didn't have parents" this after my husband and I informed her she must clean her room or no friends over.
My husband dealt with the comment.
"so do you want to live on the street in a cardboard box…do you?" (harsh but effective)
My thought "was let me pack your bags… little girl" Since 5 so I kept it to myself..
She said "No" then she back down..
Later I thought about her original statements was I don't want to have parents instead of the "I wish you were not my parents" that I am sure we will hear from her mouth when she is 16…
