Opa is more commonly grandpa in German (and maybe others Germanic language..I call3d one of my grandpa's Opa actually and he was eastern European so opa might just be used in certain parts of Europe a lot because idk). Just so you know. Just so you know, #2. Though there is a word like opala or something like that that means oops (my opa whom spoke multiple European languages said it a lot). In Greek, I think opa means something like "cheers"? but don't quote me that. The more you know? idk.
<p>I think you need to reevaluate what you consider 'valuables'.</p>
<p>I started to laugh because I thought you meant the PS hit the kid in the face, but then I realized you meant the TV and PS fell. Sucks, man.</p>
<p>Out of curiosity, how did you think yanking something out of a four-year-old's hands was going to go? Because in my experience, it was going to involve sobbing, kicking, grabbing for it back, and a generally miserable time. </p> <p>I get that it's your nephew not your kid but it's not rocket science that you redirect kids away from what they shouldn't have (but isn't dangerous), not try to snatch it out of their hands.</p>
<p>You kind of deserved this. Instead of instantly ripping things out of their hands, redirect their attention or tell them no. They're four, not four months. So, unless they have some sort of disability, they should understand no. Or don't put things out when they visit that they will want to play with. </p>
