I Need You, I Dont Need You. The eternal cognitive dissonance of kids belief in their own independence is exquisitely (and adorably) illustrated in this short video. Little Riley does not want help on the monkey bars, then realizes in a panic that she desperately needs help. Then she doesnt want it anymore. Dad struggles to comply with her wishes, while staying poised to save her from a possible fall. Back and forth it goes. Near the end, Rileys little smirk suggests that she just might be messing with Dads head for her amusement. Ah, daughters.
