Re: My 4 yo excluded from a party

Also? I bet the poor thing felt unloved, unspecial, not having received an invitation. Emma/Emma's mother either wanted to hurt her, didn't care if she hurt her, or didn't realise she had feelings that would be hurt.

Having your mum take the time and effort to bake a cake with you after that kind of hurt means that a. you *do* have feelings that are important, and b. that you *are* loved and special.

We often talk about natural consequences for bad behaviour here, but I think Danielle's response to her daughter was brilliant for giving a kind of "natural remedy" to the specific pain her daughter was feeling.
