Let's go blow your nose

When Kari invites Richard to come and blow his nose, she puts him in the role of an active participant in the process, instead of a passive recipient of a nose-wiping. This type of strategy (doing hygiene "with" children instead of "to" children) communicates respect for Richard and his right to have control over his own body. Errald absorbs this attitude as he looks on.
