    sorry but that dancer needs some ridalin.

    • Luna

      Or maybe you need a personality!

    • Ri DeCarlo

      That child is too young for ‘ritalin’ she doesn’t need to be drugged, she’s expressive and emotive. Bless her heart, may she rise and be great at whatever she does. She will too! :)

    • K.

      Sorry but you need spellcheck. Oh wait, you were doing your own thing? Yup, so was this little girl. And she, unlike you, was KILLING it.

    • TypeAMB

      It’s actually Ritalin. Did you suffer from attention deficit yourself the day they taught spelling in school?

    • PaulinaW

      You need an education in English Language. It’s always the idiots isn’t it? Always your type leaving nasty, vile trashy posts.

    That’s not cute. That’s ADHD.

    • Luna

      No, you’re not cute & misguided. That’s a preschooler being a preschooler, not a medicated robot.

    • meronym

      No it isn’t. Being a kid is not equivalent to having ADHD.

      • Carollyn

        She kept her stepping and she make it more exciting. I have seen this so much in the world when some one wants to express excitement and joy it’s often quench. the very thing we need and we try to control even what God wants for us. Leave her alone, mom don’t let no one quench her spirit.

        • meronym

          I thought she did a great job, and she looked to be trying to do some ragtime and even the Charleston. I would be proud to have a child who had so much joy to share. (Just in case, when I said “no it isn’t,” I meant it isn’t ADHD. I think the dance was super cute!)

    • K.

      No need to medicalize pure joy. Unless of course, you are opposed to unbridled joy.

    • PaulinaW

      Mine, you people are just born with hate! You’re nasty piece of trash! This is a child you sick, insane, twisted sub-humans.

    • phyllis

      No. She was well focused on the music and the words. She was on task…she just enhanced the task. Gifted in at least one of the intelligences see Gardner.

      You think you can look at a child and diagnose the child. Scared of you.

  • elmn8h8

    she is so excited its cute, why does this have to be a disorder, can’t it just be a really excited kid?

  • rms

    drug a kid for being excited, fun, engaged, individual, entertaining (the rest of the peeps looked pretty bored, that last one was asleep). Encourage coloring outside the box, you’ll call these people innovators later in life. Smiles made today by this performance.

    Cutest thing I’ve seen EVER! Shame on those who want to put this artistic child on meds. Embrace her energy and uniqueness.

    • Jai

      Dance Baby, Dance! This made my heart smile.

  • SusanSporran

    It really bothers me that people see a child who is a vibrant individual and want to extinquish that by drugging her! I suppose you’d rather she be a lifeless drone. I hope her parents and teachers know how to encourage that spirit in her to grow. She seems to already know what Richard Branson has said “You’ll never have to think outisde the box if you never let anyone put you in one.” I say to her: you go girl!

    • Monica Gail Kriese

      I agree with you for the most part – and I don’t believe she needs any sort of medication but please look at how damaging your generalization about medication is for those that truly need the meds – I speak as a parent with lived experience and it’s these generalizations that continue stigma.

      • SusanSporran

        I have nothing against medication for those legitimately diagnosed as needing it. I am very close to people who cannot function without meds as prescrbed iby their doctors and fully support that. But recommending meds for a child only based on a video is truly irresponsible and sends the message that vibrancy, creativity and energy are bad things that should be medicated away without a doctor’s diagnosis. I see her behavior as worth cultivating.

  • Kim

    As an early childhood educator, you cannot say that a three year old child has ADHD, they are too young to determine that, it is rare to diagnose a child so young with ADHD. This is a young child, full of energy and excitement. When we have our children perform songs or plays at school, there is often a child that gets a little goofy, one that freezes, and others that cry and run off stage… that just how children are. That little girl will grow up to take the world head on, she won’t let anyone bully her and she will be quite successful!

      • Serena Rossi

        The kid is an attention seeking, disobedient mess that will end up being an attention seeking, antisocial teen and adult. Ya, keep applauding it. Society pays the price for it, in the end.

        • Nickie Bagai

          I think she just was really into the song? I was a nanny for 17 years. This girl looks happy and did her best. I think its rude to say such things about a child you don’t know. Not to mention I have a nephew with autism and I am sure there a moment one could watch him for a few moments and say some not so nice things with out knowing him. Lesson- Don’t judge….and really don’t judge when its child with a smile on her face and everyone around them!

        • badgalAG

          would you prefer we applaud a conformist attitude instead, and encourage all children to “follow” others? it goes both ways, so give your head a shake and leave the CHILD alone.

          @ Serena Rossi, Your words were The same An insipid teacher of mine once told me and I simply thank god that I did not let her negativity, dim my light or shut down that spark inside only some have…. As an artist , dancer, singer professional ( Grammy winning) it is refreshing to see children dancing to the beat of their own music and not conforming to the boring, and expected, I also hold a masters degree and never became a menace to society I m certain this little girl won’t either …. You really need to relax with the cynical and pessimistic remarks against an innocent little girl, dance, shake it up! Don’t worry what others are going to think, as long as youre not harming anyone! You can learn a lot from this little girl… Remember this quote : ” And those who were seen dancing, Were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” -Nietzsche

        • Elaine Alice JacksonGame

          Oh come on , what a bitter and cruel post.. This little child will be the one I will remember for the pure uninhibited joy she gave to everyone , she was so immersed in the song and what a performance.. it was the best medicine I have had for ages.. a hearty laugh at a delightful little lass who one day I am sure will make you eat your words.. she is star material…

        • Demetria Gilbert Pope

          Hmmm…. if you dont have anything nice to say… dont say anything!!! I have a grand daughter with a similar spirit… Hell, I had a similar spirit. The recital was not just this one performance. If youd seen the other, youd realize.. this little girl merely got caught up in this particular song…. I’m assuming you dont have children. If you do, poor them. Wow, condemning a child and judging what her future will be based on a pre-school dance performance. Shame on you!!!

  • SoCalMama

    I am surprised at the comments about ADHD. This is a preschooler you are talking about. You don’t drug preschoolers. We should all be able to sing and dance our hearts out without worrying what everyone else thinks. What a gift she has to not be shy and self-conscious. She is not distracted or unfocused or doing the wrong thing on stage. She is doing the dance, singing the song, and doing it with joy and enthusiasm. Why squash her spirit? She will be somebody someday–famous or not–because she is putting it out there and people will notice her.

    • KyMommy

      People kill me!!! Man shut up and enjoy the video!!! Everybody wants to criticize ALL of the time. Just watch the freakin video and enjoy a child being a child!!! I get so sick of people sitting behind a computer picking out faults in any and everything! SHUT UP already!!! That little girl is having fun! Something kids aren’t allowed to do now days. Take your online Psychology degree elsewhere! She’s a natural!! Cutie pie. She made the entire show!

      • Jolie

        she is not criticizing

      • Kimberly Bradley

        Great reply

      • Serena Rossi

        No, the kid RUINED it for her peers who were trying to do the dance correctly. Don’t know how a kid this age feels entitled enough to snub her nose at her teacher and peers… guess she was probably prompted to do it. By disrespectful parents that wanted her to be the center of attention, at the cost of others. This little diva is going to end up badly. Too bad they didn’t tell her to follow the rules instead of break them. lol… Was kind of gross, really, not cute at all.

        • Elaine Alice JacksonGame

          No she didn’t she gave the whole show more character and love than you will ever have with your bitter twisted view of life.. You cannot fit everyone especially a child into the same little box, she obviously has been doing this in rehersals other wise she wouldn’t have been able to go on … and her teachers accepted her.. go and clean up your own narrow view of life , don’t force it on a child with a wonderful broad and beautiful happy soul… your soul shows its darkness. hers is only light and life.

        • KyMommy

          Serena,

          You clearly are the one with the problem! Ruined it for her peers, really? Adults like you ruin every thing for children!!!!! Something children would sit back and laugh at, simple minded, over thinking criticizing adults pick apart! Gross? You are one sick person! Really you are. Did your parents ever teach you not to be such a freaking bully? Obviously not, because if they taught you any kind of respect you would not be making such outlandish comments about an innocent child that you nothing about! Oh, and how wonderful you to be such a psychic and know what her parents told her to do and predict her future!! Keep up the good work!

    that was me as a child, I was then diagnosed and placed on meds by 9 years of age. All it did was made me blink, my parents thought it best to let my energy shine. I now live in nyc and do a ton of comedy and theater and thrive and survive off of what I love, and knew as a child. People are afraid of the extraordinary and I feel badly for those that do. For all the others I’m on your team, never diminish something that sparkles, the possibilities are endless.

    • goods

      this child is amazing, chin up girl, charge ahead, only listen to the positives, the rest are all jealous. Take it from me

  • Luna

    Omg this was so cute! I love how happy she is to entertain the audience. The louder the laughter the more amped she gets. Lol She is so vibrant & full of energy, which is why her parents probably put her in dancing instead of relying on Ritalin like some of you lazy & misguided parents pointed out. What’s the matter of having a happy energetic kid than a robot depressed kid wanting to shoot up the school? So calm down folks & enjoy the innocence of this little girls performance.

  • Anonymous

    At first, I was like “WTH is she doing??” but then I realized she is probably doing the dance more like how the teacher taught it than the other kids are. lol I see this at the end-of-year productions at my kid’s school. Most of the kids this age stand there and kind of move around vaguely, but one or two will be really into it and you’ll be able to tell the choreography from what they do.

  • heyguuurlhey

    I have been diagnosed with ADHD by a Doctor. That little girl is enjoying herself and shes having a great time. She has no issues or problems. That what kids who have fun look like. Shes way too young to determine any disorders. If anyone’s kid has any kind of disorder, I’d check that last girl who didnt move AT ALL. She didnt dance at all and seemed to be in a completely different world than a stage performance mindset.

    • April L. Edwards

      I doubt they were embarrassed. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, which was evident by the applause and laughter. I’d hate to be your child and have all joy squashed out because it doesn’t fit your little box of “perfection”.

      • Randi Denae

        She doesn’t recognize “JOY”… shame. This little girl experienced more joy than some of these ignorant adults probably ever have. Her parents probably also encourage her and celebrate her spirit.

    • LMama

      That says more about you than it will ever say about the little girl. She was excited and moving to the loud music. It happens. She was clearly happy and the other kids were doing the dance the way they could as well. Please loosen up a little. This is not a behavior issue.

      Your post makes me so sad.

      You do realize that you are speaking about a four year old child, no?

      Don’t worry–she will spend the rest of her days being told how to fit in a box, how to fall in line. She will learn to do what is expected….. instead of what is felt.

      She will be taught that it’s more important to stay inside the lines than to form new colors. That following rules blindly is valued above creation. Than being a lemming will be safe but that being a peacock will engender criticism from petty middle aged women hiding behind a keyboard–and yes, I do mean you.

      That message will be repeated and then reinforced in judgmental reproaches that will sound an awful lot like yours.

      But luckily for us, it’s not that time yet and luckily for us, she doesn’t know about sour middle age party poppers yet. Right now she is what she ought to be: a delicious, effervescent, energetic, creative moment seizing super star!!!!! I value and appreciate her way more than anything you bring to this party. I celebrate her spirit and her joy and I only hope that somewhere inside your sad little heart, there is still some aspect of you that has the ability to dare to be different, and dance like no one is watching.

      This is how kids in the age group dance. Sometimes your lucky to pay a monthly fee plus costume plus tickets and have your kid do 1/8 of the performance. I’d be quite proud of my daughter for being so unique and colorful in her interpretation. But that’s my opinion and i appreciate yours. :) that’s what makes us all great. Nobody thinks, feels our dances the same.

      Oh, I see, look at her previous posts everyone. The issue here is not the child it is the color of the child’s skin. I am surprised a human with so much hate in their heart has not died by the same poison they shove down other’s throats. You are a embarrassing excuse for a human being; so many good people have died to give this “thing” life and freedom . Oh, and I did not know doing a performance with enthusiasm was acting out, I suppose you think her staring at the audience would have been better.

People like you are the reason why hate is so prevalent in this country. This child is not yet an adult and your type is already directing your hate towards her. I bet you have a miserable life and popping pills and alcohol. I’d be glad to have this beautiful child as mine!

      • BostonPatriot

        Geez. What’s everyone getting so excited about? The woman (Cindy) stated an opinion – which few agree with. But there is no “hate” in her post. In fact, the hate seems to be coming from those who disagree with her. “Evil.” “Pedophile.” “Racist.” “Rapist.” Have you lost your minds?

        By the way: I loved the little girl’s performance, and disagree with Cindy. But so what?

    • Diona

      She’s not acting out, she’s a child – having fun and enjoying herself. There’s nothing embarrassing about what she did. She stole the show! Her parents should be proud. Children should be encouraged to be themselves and to think outside of the box!

    • deedee

      Well aren’t you just a little bundle of joy? So nice to finally meet the world’s most perfect person. I take it from your post you had a rotten childhood full of rejection and criticism. I can only imagine how you are raising your children. This little girl is obviously very happy and talented. She will shine in whatever she does. It was the cutest thing ever and it is nice to smile and laugh when everything around us seems so negative. Get a grip woman.

    • phyllis

      Agree. Glad you are not her parent, too. Everyone enjoyed the dance and this little girl, too. She might be a helpful, enthusiastic angel at home. Kind and caring. But she can dance. She is so near to breaking out into real tap dance.

  • Dance Mom

    She’s cute. She’s outside the box. She’s an attention getter for sure. Although we couldn’t see most of the other children, if any of them did learn the routine and were performing it…..it’s kind of sad that all the attention was on this one child doing her own thing.

    • meronym

      I imagine the video was made by her family, though. There are probably 15 different videos from 15 different families, too.

      There’s nothing sad about it! She’s a natural born star and stood out. Maybe her parents took the video? Don’t blame a child for getting all the attention! That’s not her fault. That’s her personality and she’s not responsible for the other kids.

    yes great! I want to question the “skin-tone” tights though, not to point fault at her or her family. I wonder if the leotard/tight/ballet/tap/dance costume design people really only plan for little white girls. too bad cause clearly she’s the star of the show.

    ITS ASHAME THAT SOME PEOPLE ON HERE DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT CHILDREN….THIS LIL GIRL WAS HAVING FUN…ITS NOTHING ABOUT HER THAT SAYS ADHD….I MEAN MY GOSH…SOME PEOPLE JUST LOVE TO CRITICIZE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING EVEN THE INNOCENCE OF A CHILD HAVING FUN AND JUST DOING HER OWN THING…SHE WAS NOT TRYING TO OUT DO ANYBODY….GET A LIFE….PLEASE…JUST GET A LIFE….

    @ “That little girl will grow up to take the world head on, she won’t let anyone bully her and she will be quite successful!”

    Just to be fair, you cannot say that a three year old child will be “quite successful,” she is too young to determine that too.

  • Cheryle Correa

    As a former dance teacher of little girls, my guess would be that this little girl is probably the only one who really knew the routine. The other girls, (although adorable), were doing very little and in some cases nothing at all, while the little “star” not only was doing the steps but also had the personality.

    That was NOT cute. That little child has issues. If her parents don’t reel her in now we’ll all be reading about some crazy crime she commits in 20 years.

    • Rissie75

      Hmmm interesting “issues”??? Well I hate to be the one to tell you, but the only with issues is YOU!! My daughter was the same at the age of 3 at her first recital, and today at the age of 21 she has graduated Summa cum laude (Yup, the HIGHEST in her university) this year and now is going overseas to teach in Africa for 2 years and then to Europe…so my dear what can you possibly know about this little 4 year who clearly is thinking outside YOUR box? SMH

    • meronym

      Lol, when I was a kid in dance class, I was just as much of a cut-up because I thought I knew the routine. Of course I didn’t, but I sashayed around that stage like I was Josephine Baker. Now I’m about to finish a PhD and have *somehow* managed not to commit any crazy crimes; funny how that turned out, huh?

    Like all the sensible commentators I’m beyond charmed by this bright shining star. I’ve watched the video over and over since I first saw it this morning and I’ve noticed that she hasn’t actually changed the choreography. Instead of going through the motions literally and figuratively, she’s executed the dance like the artist she is! Good job Mommy, Daddy and dance teacher!

    That little girl was amazing and clearly shows soooo much potential!

    My biggest worry is that if this would have been kindergarten instead of dance class, she would have already been flagged as suffering from ADHD or some other leaning ‘issue’, Children like that are often placed in special ed programs so they can be ‘mainstreamed’..

    Too many of our most gifted children are being classified as ‘educationally challengedj’ simply because they are ‘original’. and highly spirited. I often wonder if the term ‘mainstreaming’ isn’t just another word for conforming….not unlike a chorus line,where everybody.has to make the same dance moves.

    • Anonymous

      You are right. It doesn’t matter if kids can solve problems, be inventive, or original. All we care about is their ability to sit quietly, learn ONLY via listening, and be adapt at memorizing factoids to parrot back and to fall into line and follow rules. What a shame.

      I am crazy about this little girl and I celebrate her!

      • danny

        When outgoing children grow up and in the “normal world” they are seen as not agreeable and will be an outsider or considered weird. Oh we like her now, but will you want her as your bank teller, waitress, the person in the next cubical? Hopefully she will find a place in the world where she can be herself and shine.

  • Todd Bishop Dean

    I think she ruined the whole performance. Why choreograph the production? Just tell the kids we are going to play a musical number, and you can jump around all you want. If I were one of the other parents, I’d be pissed off. The problem is, no one wants to instill even the most simplest discipline and think it’s cute when a kid distracts from what should be an event showing how one learns and is taught. Instead of being able to judge your child’s progress, you have to be distracted by someone’s undisciplined kid. There’s no defense for this.

    • meronym

      None of those kids were ready for the Russian Ballet, so it’s not like anyone really missed much. Everyone probably filmed their own child anyway, so if they were distracted, they can always go back and watch that. Ease up, geez.

      The other kids couldn’t even dance. They were watching the instructor off stage. This little girl actually knew the words, and dance moves. If you actually watch the video, you’ll see she’s doing the correct moves, but more advanced versions of them – and she doesn’t have to stare at the teacher to do them. Should this child be held back so that the others don’t feel bad?

      • Todd Bishop Dean

        Oh give me a break. The other children are looking to the instructor because this child is a distraction and they’re looking for direction because they’ve been taught something different that this girl is not following. I bet the other girls knew the words, too, but they were disciplined enough to not sing them as that was not the venue, and to say she is doing more advanced versions of the moves is laughable. How can you even make that assessment when she doing something totally different than what the other girls are doing. She’s not more advanced. She’s just a wildcard.

      • Todd Bishop Dean

        Oh, and as far as holding kids back so that the others don’t feel bad(sic), have you paid attention to our education system for the past 30 years or so?

    • Ashley

      See, and there’s the thing of it. You are probably nailed exactly how some of the other parents felt about this. However, to dismiss it as a lack of discipline is clearly not appropriate either. The girl was trying to follow along and by the simple fact she is enrolled in an activity that facilitates energetic children demonstrates that her parents are trying to empower her. I sympathized instantly because of my experiences with my own ADHD daughter. This girl’s parents probably work their butts off trying to help her succeed; they probably use more discipline in their house than most out of necessity. That is the trouble with ADHD. Cute to some, and in the right situations, distracting and frustrating to others and in the wrong situations. To say there is no defense for it is ignorance of the challenges her parents most likely face daily.

      If I were the mother of that adorable kid to her left I would be furious. The “little star” spent half the time on stage in that poor child’s face. Still the little girl soldiered on and she looked like the youngest in the group. If anyone will be a dancer as an adult it will be her, not the kid spazzing out and ruining it for the other kids.

        That child looked like she had a disorder I’m sorry. She was bursting out making uncontrollable facial expressions and completely unaware of her surroundings. The other little girls cutely fed up the choreography by default of being uncoordinated babies. Her movements were something else. The girl to the left was probably put next to her so the disabled girl would not look like she was being cast aside from the group by being at the end. She was probably well behaved and patient and knew the dance which is why she was put in such an important place in the line. The teacher is usually backstage doing the show with the kids in case they get lost. She is at the far end because she knows it. Her mother is probably very proud! I am Black and a dance teacher. I’m not going to love this video by default or label her a ‘diva’ or ‘rebel’. Though a White girl would be labeled as ‘quirky’.

    There’s nothing wrong with thinking the little girl has ADHD. That was my first impression as well, only that I didn’t necessarily identify it as ADHD, but as something “not quite right” about the little girl. What’s wrong with thinking, or even, expressing that?

    • http://knowledgenationusa.wordpress.com/ Candis Best

      A child with ADHD wouldn’t have stayed in line, kept up with the words or done any part of the organized choreography. She did all three. She’s not disabled. I suspect she’s just an easily excitable 3 year old and it sounds like the crowd was grateful for the distraction.

      • Ashley

        On the contrary, she behaves IDENTICAL to my incredibly ADHD child. She didn’t entirely stay in line. Each kid is different even with ADHD. And no, I don’t think there is anything wrong with saying that she has ADHD. For all its difficulties, it has many blessings as well. I instantly recognized that behavior from my own experiences with my exuberant free spirited ADHD wonder.

        • http://knowledgenationusa.wordpress.com/ Candis Best

          Resistenting the tendency to throw the ADHD label around is not an indictment of those for whom the diagnosis applies. But perhaps we should all leave the diagnosing to people who have actually spent time in person with this child. .

    As the mother of 2 girls who danced (one ended up as a teacher) and now granddaughters who dance, I watched many a recital and usually enjoyed the young dancers the most. They are so unpredictable and for many it’s a first in the spot light. She did seem to know the dance, just added her own excitement to it. Dancing is a great form of exercise, uses the brain in remembering the steps and builds confidence in the performers. She and the others, too, have gained a bit of an advantage over their peers. Keep it up.

    this is why you should not do crack when you are pregnant

    • John

      If you are saying that she may have some kind of imbalance, it does not have to be crack-it might be sugar. Crack addicts are self absorbed and would not even know that dance classes are available. I think her family may demonstate more energetic types of dances in her home and she is use to very expressive movements. As an African American I know that as a group we do not tolerate boring demonstrations in dance of any kind which may (be a little cruel sometimes.) Many of our college students are not accepted into fraternities or sororities because they cannot dance. I know this for a fact! This is done to teach persistence, hard work, and to overcome hardship, and promote excellence. For those who are accepted 20 or more hours a week are spent learning dance steps, dynamic expression, running and exercising.

This ones gotta be a thumbs down for me. These kids deserve a change at promotion, and its not fair to have it ruined by a ‘class clown’.

    She seriously looks mildly retarded, Autism maybe? Or this could likely be learned behavior from her single parent, most likely “mother” or grandmother, household. You know how THOSE people are, not happy unless they are the loudest, grossly ridiculous, hey look at me, most obnoxious center of attention in the room behavior. Even if it is not good attention/behavior. I feel sorry for her future PUBLIC school teachers having to deal with her and her future lack of respect and bad attitude. Moreover, she will most likely be pregnant before she is old enough to drive. Yes, our “wonderful” progressive society, let us reward the little monkey. Glad I live in the burbs and my own children attend private schools where kids like the one causing all the commotion DO NOT ATTEND.

      Nobody is going to waste their time responding to your pathetic, racist comment, but I’ve got a cold so I’m sick in bed with time to waste on morons. Your clear hatred and ignorance don’t reflect upon you well (understatement — imagine an adult spewing hatred at a small child after her dance concert). If you did go to private school, get your money back — you went to a weak one. And if you live in the suburbs, in time your neighbors (and your children) will come to know you for the small-minded racist you are representing yourself to be.

    First, you can see traits of ADHD in young children. One of the diagnostic traits they look for is that the symptoms have been there for years and they will diagnose children at four. Second, I don’t understand what is wrong with saying she most likely has ADHD. She most likely does. Yes, she is spirited and unique, most ADHD kids are. They are such a joy in so many situations, and often incredibly smart. Would you be saying the same things if she did something like this during a wedding you were attending? Or would you judge the parent for not controlling their child? Parenting an ADHD kid is not so simple as just embrace it and avoid meds. Each case is unique and there is no shame in having it.

    Sorry to go against the grain here, but the kid ruined it for the others. I don’t get why everyone applauds this. The others were following the dance and worked as a team. This one felt entitled to “do her own thing” with total disregard for her peers. It wont stop here.. lol…I doubt the little diva will become a star; any kid can act out like that. I think she will probably feel that she is entitled to disobey the rules as she grows, and will prob end up badly… wont say it, but you all know where it’s going. After we take off the color blind glasses and just call bad behaviour as it is.. bad.

    I certaily don’t think everyone should be the same, but I do believe when performing as a group kids should be taught early that there is a time and place to shine. If she needed to be a star, she should have been removed from the group and given a solo or had a solo built into the routine. To take over the production and just do it her way sends a message that its ok to do whatever you want when you want. It may improve over time, but it should be monitored so that it doesn’t turn from free expression and joy into attention seeking, disruptive, and selfish behavior. She is only 3 so nobody should start calling the child names or diagnosing her this early.
