"We Do Not Hit"

Kids are really really good at pushing each other's buttons.  Poke poke poke poke poke... until 


Yes, the annoyed child lashed out and whacked his brother.

This played out more than a few times in my household. And each time, we firmly stated

"We Do Not Hit."

That hurting someone is a bad choice. (Yes, we also talked to the one doing the annoying, after making sure no actual first aid was needed.)

In Paris, satirists repeatedly poked. Poke poke poke.
Extremists took offense, stormed the magazine offices, and killed twelve people.

We do not hit.

We do not hit.
We do not hit.

AND we treat each other kindly and with respect.
