My son doesn't know where his body is. So he pulls his shirt over his shoulders or over his knees and sometimes isn't sure if he's sitting or lying down.
He isn't too forceful — he just doesn't know about force. He isn't being rude — he just doesn't realize there's not enough room between him and you. He isn't being picky or defiant — he can't handle the sensation of something sticky on his hands or in his mouth. We can no longer take for granted what we thought we knew about babies, children, people.
