What to say when a kid says "make me"?
When kids say or do something that she doesn't like or is uncomfortable with she responds, "Please stop." Their reply is, "Make me." She has no come back for this. I've encouraged her to simply shake her head and walk away, but she tells me that she can't always do that - she's in class or ball practice. I then suggested that she try something like "I shouldn't have to make you be a good person." I'm not sure this is right either.
I'd love some advice on the best way to help her handle this type of thing. I can't fix it for her, but maybe I can give her some tools for dealing with it. Help!
