A friend of ours, who is a military veteran, once disciplined our daughter for slamming a door in anger at his home. After checking with us, he used his “Military Voice” with her. It left a deep impression, so when she acts up, sometimes we say, “Should we call Sergeant B?”
She says, “No, don’t speak of it!” It’s a very unusual phrase for a six-year-old.
