Please help me shake my judgment.
Matthew and Quinn often play chase games where he is going to "get" her, and she screams, "No!" and he still tackles her. She giggles. Lately she is playing that way a lot on her own having something is try to get her, and she needs to be saved or rescued.
I appreciate that they have lots of loud and physically active play, since that play doesn't come naturally to me. Sometimes I find it inappropriate though, like when I'm trying on clothes and I can hear them from across the store. I think we should be modeling appropriate behavior in public, whether we are in a thrift store or a posh department store (not that we frequent the latter ). So that's one judgment.
I also have a lot of judgment about little girls saying "no", especially regarding their bodies, and being ignored and about Quinn playing a victim role. I know this is my own stuff coming up and has a lot to do with my training and background in Social Work.
I would like to shake my "shoulds" and appreciate the joy in their play. Any ideas for helping me tease this out or any similar experiences to share?
