Sometimes, the language we are learning to speak is our family’s own language of getting by in the world – every parent has a different way of teaching the lessons of life, a different language of teaching. In today’s EXTRA on The Apple Seed, storytellers Milbre Burch and Mary Gay Ducey bring you "Minding His Mother," a story of a young boy struggling to mind his manners in the world – in the meantime, his mother turns every mistake he makes into an opportunity to help him grow. Enjoy learning to speak this mother’s parental language as she sees her child’s mistakes as learning opportunities. The story is from a collection of tales about mothers and their children, with the wonderful title "Because I Said So."
