Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Activities for Celebrating with Your Kids

Kid Brother

Seven-year-old Derek sits down on the couch to watch his favorite cartoon. His two-year-old brother Garvin wanders into the room and starts crying that he wants to watch Teletubbies.

"You watched TV all morning and now it's my turn," says Derek. But Garvin stands in front of the screen and won't move.

"Get out of the way!" yells Derek. His brother yells back: "No!"

"If you don't get out of the way, I'll make you move and you won't like it!" warns Derek. But his brother won't budge. Derek gets off the couch. His mother is upstairs working on her computer. She told Derek to stay out of her office, that she was busy and he was in charge.

If you were Derek, what would you do? What would Dr. King do?
