I hear you, Secret Agent Girl. I also was astounded at the amount of judgmental responses to hearing of a kid's expressing what would seem to be quite innocent feelings. On studying the comments, I got to thinking the parents "listening" seem to hear their children's statements as commands for the parents to do something, rather than simple descriptions of the kids' own feelings at a certain moment. The humorous and well-meaning suggestions are great! The proud "shut up or suffer the consequences" responses are still sadly too typical of our human condition.
