3. I Had It Yesterday so Why Can’t I Have It Today

All that happens and all that matters will happen to your child. This is one of the ways your child sees the world. There is no world outside the micro-world your child lives in.

For example, a small child may learn to deceive his or her parents by waiting until they leave the room, but cannot yet understand how sounds work and how they may reach another room. Your child is in his or her own little bubble, and as your child gets older that bubble becomes a little bigger. Your child gets older and starts to realize that the world doesn’t revolve around them, but for some it takes up to 22 years to figure this out. If your child had something yesterday, he or she may not understand why he or she cannot have the same thing today.
