I decided to interview my 3 year old this week to learn more about what goes on in her head. At first glance, it might seem like children only think about popsicles and postponing bedtime, but they are much more complex than that.
My 3-year-old daughter had never asked me about my tattoo until last week. It came up while I was changing. She asked me what the picture on my back was and where it came from. I paused. Should I tell her it’s a tattoo or just a picture? Should I mention that it hurt? Should I say I regret it or subtly discourage her from getting a tattoo one day?
