May, very interesting observations. First of all, do you think that any learning can evolve frm children teasing each other and / or their engagement of conflict? Next, it seems that when you left them alone and then came back and focused you attention on Christina, that the kids seemed to re-negotiate their roles and behaviors. Do you think that your presence may have or may have not played a role in this? In other words, it may have been that the kids were all competing for your attention. When you left, they had nothing to compete for. Also when your attention was focused only on Christina, they had to think about re-establishing their ties with her as a way to get your focus back on them. These are just hypothetical presumptions. What do you think. May very nice work, Ed.
