Do you refuse to carry your child?

"Dory is not happy when she is not carried."
This is from my older daughter's spelling homework. Dory is her sister. I feel heart wrenching when I see this drawing. Normally I don't refuse to carry Dory if she says her "legs are tired", or "my tummy aches."

Dory seems has figured out that she could get more attention if her "tummy aches," or if she doesn't like the bed time story, she will wriggle and and hide her face, and say, "it's a tummy-ache story!" I notice that she has almost learned to lie because of the fear of punishment. Once she blamed teddy bear for the mess when her mum screaming at her.
