You are not a good mummy

Yiu Yiu was keeping her toys, books, stickers away while I was working on my computer. She asked me to help keep a big piece of magnetic board with multiple small magnets into a book and even though I told her I'd do it in a minute, she kept whining and nagging me. Patience is really in short supply with this girl. When I eventually helped her to keep it, she made a fuss again, coz she wanted to have all the magnets facing the top of the book, which is not possible.

Mummy (with a slightly raised voice): The magnets are like that. You cannot arrange them all straight.
Yiu Yiu: Little bit also scold scold scold. You are not good mummy, you know. Good mummy is like this, (speaking in a soft tone and smiling) "Good children, I love you." Bad mummy is like this, (speaking in a stern tone) "The magnets are like that. You cannot arrange them straight."
Mummy: OK, so what will good mummy do if her children are naughty and never listen? Will the good mummy scold her children?
Yiu Yiu: Yes, but I want mummy to sayang me. So you sayang me or not?
Mummy: Of course I sayang you. I scold you and let you know what you did wrong, but I will still sayang you.
Yiu Yiu (with the puppy look on her face): I want mummy to sayang me.

Mummy 1, Yiu Yiu 0.

Mimi/LilHyppo's Mum/2 ma - pengsan rite?

Michelle - yeah, when I get angry with her, she gets very scared; not bcoz she's afraid of being scolded, but it's like she's afraid I won't love her.
