Toddler Empathy

Mandy drops ceramic plate on her bare toe.

Mandy: OUCH!
Sam: (Laughs).
Mandy: Oh Sam, it's not funny. I hurt my toe. Ouch! Ouch!

Pause. Sam picks up his plastic plate and throws it on his foot. Sam laughs. I laugh.

So sweet! It's great that he is already showing empathy. Just don't go cutting off your arm or anything. You could end up with empathy gone horribly wrong.
