Girl child: Baba, [name of little brother] just poked me with his finger.
Baba: Well, punkin, what might you want to say to him?
Girl child (turning carefully to address her little brother): [name of boy child], I don’t like it when you poke me with your finger. Next time, when you’re angry or frustrated, I want you to use words instead.
Boy child (not missing a beat): Sissy, can I poke you with my finger?
