What do you do when your three-year-old shows signs of “I don’t like pink” syndrome?
You tell him “But Ama and Baba love pink!”
When that doesn’t work, and you need him to wear a shirt in the morning, and he says no because it’s pink, what do you do?
You tell him the colour is salmon!
“Oh I like salmon!” He says.
There you have it. It was a mental block against pink and not that he actually disliked the colour.
Only once did he say: “but it looks like pink Ama!” to which I agreed. He went around telling people that he likes the colour “simon”.
