...(although he doesn't have to look like this, but more so of the same age, fiest, and persona) that turned 2.4 and seemingly lost most of his 2.3 & under manners, turning into a vigorous rabble-rouser, what would you do?
More specifically, imagine if you--hypothetically speaking--were at a nearby park that you frequent often and you arrived as the only park players, but were later joined by a boy that looked to be at least 2 years older than your boy and at least two heads taller than your boy, but your boy insisted on calling out to the seemingly innocent older and bigger boy, "No! No, boy! No!"
So tell me, would you pretend it wasn't happening, wait until the older, bigger boy gave your boy what he was asking for, or remind your boy over-and-over that "we talk nice to our friends"... but end up announcing anyways for an early park departure, and walk your boy to the car because he refuses to share his playground?
Hypothetically speaking, of course.
