While working with Kindergarten children, I noticed that they crash and bump into one another often. I would see them running at full speed, intent on their goal and not paying attention to the friends around them. Heads bang and, after a few seconds of stunned silence, the cries begin. Bumps require a trip to the office for the small baggie filled with ice. Soothing words and the comfort of ice pressed against the bump are enough to stop the sobs. Five minutes later the injured parties are up and running again. And still not paying attention to their surroundings.
