"I Want" Gets Nothing
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "Mom," asked Jan, "Why do we say please?"
 
2     "It is part of being polite," said Mom. "Come and help me set the table, please."
 
3     "Why do we say that word?" asked Jan.
 
4     "I think it is part of the phrase 'if you please,'" said Mom. "It means if it makes you happy."
 
5     "It is like I am asking a favor?" said Jan.
 
6     Mom nodded as she put the flatware on the table. "It is very much like that. If someone came to you asking a favor, what would you do?"
 
7     "I would think about it. I might even do it," said Jan.
 
8     "How would you feel if they just told you to do it?" asked Mom.
 
9     "I would not like that," said Jan.
