One day when I began opening a bag of chips, both my 16-month-old daughter, Hannah, and our dog came running. "Chips! Chips! Chips!" yelled Hannah.
I had been trying to teach her to say 'please,' so with the dog waiting patiently at my heels, I took out a chip and told the dog, "Say please, Hannah." The dog barked.
This happened over and over, until I decided to get rid of the dog by giving it a chip. I turned back to Hannah, took a chip from the bag and, once again, bid her, "Say please, Hannah."
She looked up hopefully and replied, "Woof!"
