Manipulation starts young

Nik was building an intricate tower of blocks with his friend, S___ at school when I showed up with Anjali.  There were cars inside and he was building ramps, etc.  [Pete should be happy with this, since they were doing just that a week ago.]  I watched as Nik and S___ talked to each other, Nik telling him where to place a block, S____ responding…so neat to watch.

Then along came R___ with a car.  As he sat down to join them, S____ said: “Your car can’t come in here.”

Without hesitation, R___ said: “Then you can’t come to my Chuckie Cheese birthday party.”

S___: “You can play.”
