…and what our behaviors really mean.
Yes, I’ve become quite verbal and opinionated person these days! In fact, I can be quite bossy – I tell my parents where to sit, or what I want to eat. But when it comes to communicating more complex thoughts and emotions in words – I must admit – that I still have ways to go! So, my parents are often forced to interpret my somewhat funny and/or weird behavior! How fun, huh?!
However, I’m providing you with a few hints below to help you decipher the hidden meaning of our common tantrums and body language!
1. We won’t look you in the eye.
Translation: “I’m embarrassed!”
2. We lift our shirt over our head when we meet a new person.
Translation: “I’m anxious!”
3. We hide when we poop in our diaper.
Translation: “I want some privacy!”
4. Throwing food, hitting, breaking toys.
Translation: “I’m bored”, “I’m tired,” or “I need attention!”
