Alycia has picked up another bad habit from pre-school. For the past one week, she loves to put her hands together with both her forefingers pointing out and 2 thumbs straight up to form a ‘gun’ and she would say “piang, piang, piang” as she says “I will kill you” to my mum. I have never shown her this before and have never said those words too. I have also never given her the opportunity to watch such movies on TV. I am very sure she had learned this from the little boys in pre-school. My mum and I were really shocked and displeased with this bad behavior and have warned her and scolded her but to no avail in stopping her from doing it. In fact, the more we reprimanded her, the more intense her actions were. I notice that this is very common in kids and I hope it is just a passing phase that a toddler would go through.
