As I start moving around and exploring more, I might touch things that you don’t want me too, or touch something more roughly than you would like. Whether I’m reaching for your earrings, pulling your hair, or tugging on one of our pets, just remember that I’m not doing these things to intentionally hurt anyone. I don’t understand yet that my hands can hurt or that I shouldn’t touch certain things. When I do things like this, just tell me a gentle “no,” take the item away from me, and give me something else to play with or show me how to touch “gently”.
