 Would you say 3 and 4 year olds are capable of manipulation?

 I thought so! This lady on FB said her 4 year old dd wont stop coming into her and dh room at night no matter what she does and I said "Well if youve tried everything else maybe you shuld try assigning a consequence because it sounds like she is manipulating you."  To which another mom came in and said "WOW! MANiPULATION?! 4 year olds test you but they cannot manipulate!!" I just thought to myself "My kid is smart...dont know about yours" lol

Absolutely and being cute just makes it worst.

My 8 year old could teach a class on the subject.
