“Do you know that your daddy loves you?”
“Yes, I know my daddy loves me.”
“Is your daddy mean and bad to you?”
“No, you don’t like to be mean.”
“Is your daddy a horrible, bad daddy?”
“Then listen to what daddy is going to say. I would like to tell you why I had to say ‘no’ to what you wanted to do, but I can’t. If I explained it to you, you wouldn’t understand anyway, so here’s what you need to do. You need to walk down the hallway and say to yourself, ‘I don’t know why daddy said no to me, but I know my daddy loves me and I’m going to trust my daddy.’ I really do love you.”
“I love you too.”
