My daughter related the following vignette, with the wry comment that Covid has blunted some of her social skills in casual conversation. Recounted with her permission,.
Exasperated mom of a two-year-old
Mom: It’s so frustrating. All day long all she says is, “No! No! No!”
Emma: It’s never too early for a girl to learn to say no.
