I may be of a different mind than many but I think it is pointless to explain things to littles. Not saying I don't talk to them about what has happened but I don't expect them to understand and reason like adults. They are children. Very selfish and single minded at times. Not saying there is anything wrong with that but it is what it is. I set clear rules with reasonable consequences. If they break said rule and do not like the consequence, too bad. I ignore the pouting or have them scream and cry in their room. A battle of will and reason with a small child is pretty silly, IMHO.
