Adolescence summed up in just over a minute. In this video, 12 year old Sophie and 8 month old Bubbles, both in the throes of adolescence, test each other. Note how both check in with “the mama” (i.e., me the videographer) and upon being ignored, are forced to deal with each other. I love how Sophie remains patient and finally gets Bubbles to listen despite what feels like a long line of ignoring. The big reward is a love fest. My favorite is how Sophie gets a hands on feeling of what it’s like for a parent to stay true and patient to a child.
