Who is the child?

Our preschool teacher has asked us to record ideas on "Who is the child?" for an early learning workshop.
My (imperfect) summary of the preschooler ...

Who is the child?

I am growing up. I am full of contradictions.

I want you to hold my hand be my guide. I want to do it my way.
I want you to tell me what to do. I want to be in control.
I want rules and structure. I want to feel freedom.
I really need my special person by my side. I want to prove I can go it alone.
I want to be taken seriously. I want to be silly.
Sometimes I am 2 years old. Sometimes I am 10.

I could reach the stars, if only you would pull them down for me.
