When Silence Isn’t Always Golden

One evening while telling Zoe for the nth time that she needs to take a bath already and having no luck, I decided to give her the silent treatment. I try as much as possible not to force her to do something she has to do. My charm just didn’t seem to work that day.

Me: Zoe, okay, it’s time to take a bath now. How many times do I have to tell you it’s time to take a bath!

Zoe: Later mom, after I draw.

Silence…

Zoe: Mom? Blah-blah-blah…

Me: I’m not talking to you (pretending to read a book)

More silence…

Zoe: Mom, I’m not talking to you either (as she continues drawing, without any trace of resentment or bitterness, clueless of my silent attempt).
