I don't expect that much, because they really don't always understand.

We might think that they know clearly what we expect out of them, but I haven't seen evidence of that with my own kids. When I have an expectation it takes more than just talking, it takes showing, sometimes even taking their arms and gently showing them what I want them to do, over and over again. And sometimes, if they're not developmentally ready, the lesson still will not stick. They might forget what was previously taught, or be so caught up in their own feeling that they're too overwhelmed to realize our desires.
