Latest TODAY column: A dialogue with my son
MY two-year-old son Isaac has been showing signs of dissent. He insists on watching his Wiggles DVDs and other "tartoons" on "teebee". And when I say no, he throws a tantrum and bawls.
I am concerned. He used to be a sweet baby but these days, he is testing the boundaries of what is allowed, pushing for things to be done his way.
I tried to reason with him, suggesting that perhaps he would like to do something wholesome like read a good book with me. But he wanted his TV show, and for the time being, he did not want to be persuaded.
