Six-year-olds are very wrapped up in their own lives, and that's the way it should be.
Your brain, like your tongue, is a muscle. Practicing thinking by yourself really helps develop your brain, which you need throughout your day. I like to practice my thinking in a darkened room, alone.
If somebody takes the parking place you were waiting for, I tend to kind of let it roll off my back. Maybe I'm harboring a lot of something and it will all explode somewhere down the road, but I tend to just let it slide off my back.
Don't underestimate your kids. Don't be condescending, because they're children but they're not stupid.
