Daniel: “give me your hand”
She gives him her hand, they walk hand in hand in the house.
Daniel: “today, at the nursery, the girls with the red shirt said I had pipi hands”.
Later that day, Hadas: "Uri, did you hear what Daniel said? The girls at the nursery, I think it was the twins, told Daniel he had pipi hands. I think he was very upset by it. He kept asking me to give him my hand and was very offended if I didn’t do that".
Uri: “I don’t think there’s anything we can do. Don’t worry, it will be all right".
The next day: Daniel, sobbing: “why didn’t you give me your hand?”
Hadas: I can’t walk around in the house hand in hand with you for the whole day. What’s wrong with you? What’s this hand thing?”
Daniel: “you know why I wanted to hold your hand?”
Daniel: “It’s because I love you”.
Hadas: “I love you too, but I can’t hold your hand all the time, we are two separate people. I have things to do, you know”.
Daniel, sobs: “but I wanted you to hold my hand:
Hadas: “you know what? I think that you are still upset about these girls that told you unpleasant things.
Hadas: “well, that’s very silly, because you are the most handsome clever strong boy there is, and you are a superhero".
Daniel: “that’s not true. I’m a knight”
Hadas: “sorry, a knight. Anyway, you are so handsome and strong and clever and if anyone tells you anything unpleasant you should pity them because they are jealous of you. And you know what?”
Hadas , excited: “you should pity them, because you can turn your back on them and not play with them if they’re not nice, but they can’t escape from themselves. If someone says something unpleasant to you, don’t pay any attention to them, just turn around and don’t play with them. There are plenty of nice children you can play with”.
Danie (pensive): “but I can’t”
Daniel: “because I don’t know how to turn around”.
