I love Mags’ little head shake and the expression on her face before she raises her hand.
She’s just like “No.”

You can see her deciding to die for Annie

No but real talk. Mags would’ve been one of Annie’s mentors. She watched Annie fall apart after her Games. And she watched Finnick put Annie back together, no doubt Annie was trying to hold herself together when Finnick was reaped, but when she was? No she completely lost all of the composure she had. In the books, Annie has a full on breakdown on stage, even after Mags volunteers, and Finnick was the only one able to calm her down.

best thing i learned working with and learning about kids: when they do shit like this, especially to something they themselves use and enjoy, leave it there for as long as possible. let them return to the fun thing over and over again so that it sinks in that the thing they did was wrong, they ruined something, and now they can’t have fun because of it and they should never do it again. it teaches them consequence of action and cautiousness.

i did this with a 3-year-old kid i babysat who filled his playstation with peanut butter before i got there, just every time he went back to it and asked why it’s not working, i opened it and pointed to the peanut butter stains and said “you did that” and he says “yeah”, “will it work like that?” “…no”, and when he got it and promised to never put anything but games into a game machine again, his parents bought another and he kept his promise. it works, even at that age.

this was a long and unnecessary rant but so many times i’ve seen parents IMMEDIATELY replace their kids’ toys/electronics that they destroy over and over again and i’m just like NO THEY’RE NOT LEARNING ANYTHING THAT WAY 

they also don’t learn from being thrown into fires

yeah but they’re quieter that way
