British!

We are studying the American Revolution right now. We talked about "taxation without representation." I was trying to get her to understand that the colonists felt it was unfair that they were required to follow rules when they had no say in what the rules were. I may have asked her to think about how she might feel if one of us asked her to follow a rule she didn't have a say in and thought was unfair, and that maybe the colonists felt a similar way.

WeaverDad was recently setting a new rule with the kids. Punkin was not thrilled with this rule, and was angry with him. She turned to him and said,

"British!"

I think she got it.
