MC's got a tantrum and she chose to turn her temper on her Papa.
Then, she came running to me declaring, 'Ich hab schon heute morgen gesagt, Ich bin doof.' (I already told myself this morning that I am stupid).
Repeating herself over and over again that she is stupid. I told her she dont believe this. She ignored me and continued berating herself for being stupid.
I asked her then why she thinks she is stupid. I asked her what stupid means. I asked her to explain why she feels stupid. I asked her to let me know what stupid is.
Her only answer was to shake her head but she stopped crying.
I told her that she is not stupid. I told her that she is only saying that word because she is angry. I told her I know she is disappointed. And I know that she's saying that to get back to her Papa.
Then she gave me a big hug and simply cuddled closer. After a few minutes, she left my side and I saw her talking to her papa, explaining something. And they came out together smiling afterwards.
No, she is not stupid.
