How do you explain dichotomies to 3yr olds?
Several situations arise:
We want them to be observant about the world around them, just not when we walk past a very large bellied man removing his shirt(actually words spoken by Josiah, “Whoa! Mom, that guy’s naked and has a big belly, that’s silly!” of course said man cast a nasty glare.)
OR we want them be wary of strangers, but wish they were more friendly and outgoing around new people.
To add to the confusion, we want them to be honest but not when we’re eating something they don’t like at someone else’s house.
