creativity might help. showing her things in the world that are “forever” because a little person doesnt understand concretely, especially a little person that has been dumped before.
show her how MK was little and now is big with pictures and is still there
show her how the pets do something “naughty” and still stay around
show her how your pool gets dirty or needs new chemicals, but it stays.
and for pete’s sake, don’t tell her she is bad. use naughty or some other word. Tell her she is NOT BAD.
BAD is internalized in the self. her behaviors are naughty, she is not BAD.
