It’s been an interesting week for Luna Legend.

Firstly, she started pre-school but was embarrassed by her mom, Chrissy Teigan, throwing up during orientation.

And now the two-year-old confessed to her parents that she pushed a boy at school.

In a video shared to her Instagram followers, Chrissy can be seen asking her daughter about how school went and it’s there where she makes the admission.

“I pushed,” the toddler answers after her mom asked about her day. “Who did you push?” the former Sports Illustrated model inquired. “I pushed a boy,” Luna added confirmed. 

GUYS. ??????

According to experts, Luna’s behaviour is not unusual for a two-year-old.

Dr. William Sears, who runs a blog called Parenting, said, “Many toddlers show aggressive behaviour around two years of age, mainly out of frustration.”

He adds that stems from “their desire to do things is greater than their capability. They want to communicate their needs and wants, but have a limited vocabulary. Toddlers also become aggressive in order to release pent-up anger, to control a situation, to show power or to protect their turf in a toy squabble.”

He adds that toddlers often perceive aggressive behaviours such as biting and hitting as communication tools.

The Bump advises that the best way to react to a child that pushes another is to “keep your cool when your tot lashes out. Getting mad yourself will only reinforce the negative behaviour. Model chilled-out behaviour and your tot is likely to follow your example.”

The website further adds that a parent can comfort the victim of the pushing incident and to ease their feelings.

By doing this, a parent displays negative reinforcement for the pushing behaviour, “in other words, you don't reward his aggression with negative attention.”
