This will be a very short post, to show a dialogue I had with my daughter last year when she was about 3,5 years old.
And it will show how metaphors sometimes do not work with kids…
” Sweetheart, if you eat too much candy now you won’t be hungry for dinner”.
“But I’m eating just a little bit, mommy!”
“No. This is not a little bit. I can see you’re eating the whole bag.”
“The bag no, mommy! Just the candies that are inside of it!”
