Bug Off

My daughter was talking with her five year old niece (my granddaughter). Payton had been skiing and reported there was a girl that was bugging her. When asked more about it, she said she tried her ignoring that she does with her brother, but in her head, she was saying “Bug off!”.

Kids need strategies to deploy at will when dealing with the complexities of development. Payton is fortunate to have mastered a number of strategies, is able to label them, and describe them. While at the same time, being honest to her feelings within. Way to go, granddaughter!
