A boy comes to play with my 3-year-old daughter. Whenever he wants something my daughter doesn’t want to give, he says, “Give it to me or I’ll leave.” Unable to bear that aspect, she gives him everything. But still there are some things she can give under no condition, and she knows she cannot avoid giving them if he says he’ll leave.
She hides them before he can ask for them. She knows how to solve complex problems.
Sidenote: As Steve mentioned, I thought I’d post a clarification; that boy doesn’t take things home, it’s just that, whenever Vasudha is playing with something, he wants it, whether he wants to play with it or not.
