#70: After he has yelled at your child...
Louis: Your poor son starts to cry, something he rarely did in the seven years that he had been alive, including when he was a baby. Louis isn't sure what to think of it, but his eyes go wide at the thought of making his best friend upset. "Okay... okay...," he says gently, crouching down to his son's height and hesitantly reaching an arm over his shaking shoulders, "Okay, I'm sorry. I'm not mad at you. It's okay."
Niall: Your teenage son yells right back at him until the whole fight blows over into proportion. Niall won't talk to him for days and your son won't bother to care. It's an argument that never seems to end, no matter how many silent treatments the boys have on each other. But either way, one of them will come to. "I'm sorry." They'll hug and Niall will suggest something like Fifa or going to a big soccer game.
Liam: Your daughter knows he's a huge bluffer and can't be mad at her for anything, so she uses it against him and stares up at him with wide, innocent eyes. "Sorry, Daddy. I'm really sorry," her tiny five year old self letting her bottom lip pout out, "I love you." And that's enough to make him sigh, reach down to her level and swoop her up into his arms. "It's okay, sweetheart. I'm sorry for yelling. I love you, too."
Zayn: Your son instantly apologizes, not liking the looks or thoughts of his dad -- the one who taught him everything and hung out with him every day -- being mad or upset at him. "I'm sorry," your seventeen year old son says, no matter how strong his pride might have been, "I'm sorry for disappointing you and making you yell." No matter how old your son is, he'll always value his father and their moments.
Harry: Your stubborn thirteen year old daughter shuts him out, slamming doors in his face and ignoring him at dinner. Rightfully so, he didn't like yelling and she didn't like being yelled out, so when she started ignoring him, he lost most motivation to do things. "Please let me in," he tried at her door, knocking on it softly and resting his palms on the wood, "You are so important to me. Don't shut me out. Please don't."
