Last night my 5 year old asked if she could get some stickers. She had already had a few from our school time on her shirt and it was getting close to bathtime so I said no, you will be taking your clothes off soon. Five minutes later when I came to tell her it was bathtime she had the stickers, but was putting them on paper. She looked innocent enough, not like she was caught doing anything. When I asked her why she had the stickers after I told her no, she said she was putting them on the paper not on her clothes.
She always seems to find a way to do what she wanted to do with a twist, and gives an innocent enough explination when asked why she is doing it.
This is just one example of the little things she does that I am not sure if she is trying to get away with something or if she really just does not think she is doing anything wrong.
Is she just clever or is she manipulative? What do you do about either one?
