The little girl in the video below is absolutely adamant that her dad – a teacher – has got it wrong when counting to five.
He thinks it’s: “One, two, three, four, five” and she tells him, no, it’s: “One, two, three, five”
No amount of telling her she’s wrong has any effect.
Only when her mother asks her to count to 4 does she get it right.
The moral? Arguing is a waste of time and effort – just do what the momma does: ask the girl to do something you know she can get right.
