“Don’t tease the dog or he might bite you.”

Teasing is speaking or acting in a mean way. It usually isn’t meant to really hurt anyone. However, it can easily go too far—a sibling’s teasing could cause serious pain or teasing a dog could result in injury. It’s usually best to make sure you only tease someone who is having as much fun as you are.
