Poetry week continues…

Here is a fun one by Shel Silverstein, which embodies the “win-win mentality” we’ve discussed in a previous post, but in the poet’s characteristically playful way!

Hug O’ War
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses
And everyone grins
And everyone cuddles
And everyone wins.

Does your kiddo need to play Hug-O-War today? Do you? Or maybe this poem can serve as a lighthearted way to start a discussion around a family conflict that needs to go from win-lose to win-win. (Check out our previous post: Cultivate…COMMUNICATION with a Win-Win Mentality)
