One of our 2.5yo girls has been showing real promise as a future teacher.  She has adopted the teacher “we” language when speaking to her friends, telling them, “We share our toys at school,” or, “We are quiet at naptime.”  It doesn’t produce the same results as when it comes from the teachers – perhaps its just not as convincing coming from a 2.5yo – but it’s ok, she’ll get there.  Sometimes kids get too wrapped up in the actions of their classmates, and not focused on their own behavior.  In these moments the teachers remind the kids to worry about themselves, not their friends. Mom told us that recently Dad was instructing our budding teacher to put on her coat and head out the door.  She responded to him, “Don’t worry about me Daddy. Worry about yourself.”
