    Bernice is a KILLJOY!

    She should play with Shannon and have fun. She’ll be giving her memories that she’ll look fondly back on.

    Shannon.. you know what to do with the light saber… ;)

    Not everyone is good at pretend play with young children…she could suggest drawing/coloring, running around outside or something else where Bernice doesn’t have to pretend she’s a preschooler…and it looks as if that’s the way it’s going. Has anyone ever been able to get Shannon to sit still to read a book?

    Shannon probably doesn’t know that Darth Vader is Princess Leia’s father. On the other hand, given what Shannon’s actual father is like, that may not be much leverage for Bernice to work with.

    Yes, Bern the stereotypical psych major: trying to find herself as a codependent muse to a guy not into her, can’t empathize and manage playtime with kids, pays ridiculous amounts for coffee to imply self worth through disposable status symbols, yet thinks she’s a genius at telling other people how to be happy, healthy, fully functioning human beings.

    How close is Moony Uni to Lewis & Clark? I swear, if Bern is anything like them, Shannon will be teaching her Econ 101 by singing along to “Scrooge McDuck and Money”.

    im not a bernice fan but why call her a killjoy etc? just because she doesnt want to play with a kid. What is there some unwritten rule that you have to like kids and play with them? I don’t hate kids but I don’t particularly like being around them either and I don’t think its fair for people to judge you just because you dont like being around kids or need to entertain their childish fantasies.

    Bernice could have said the Princess wants to spend some quality time with her father, but that would have revealed too much about her relationship with her coold parents. I’m happy to see the story follow Shannon and Bernice, the kid doesn’t mince her words and will have no problem saying things Bernice needs to hear. Let’s hope Bernice can learns to play with hurricane Shannon and not just with her quiet and polite nephews.

    And I’m reminded how Disney de-canonized the Expanded Universe for Star Wars, meaning all of Leia efforts to rebuild the Galactic Republic (while raising kids with Han) and becoming a Jedi Knight on her own are gone. Not to mention her daughter, Jaina Solo, was erased and she has an amazing story. Both elements are lost…like a fart in the wind.

    Did Bern only watch the first movie? Since the prequels, we know that ‘Darth’ is not a first name, a that he should be called ‘Vader.’ Or, to be really accurate ‘Anakin.’ Lucas simply hadn’t decided that yet when he made the first one.

    Shannon might have a future directing in the film industry, but I agree with Bernice – I wouldn’t want to get physical and “wrestle” with a child I was watching for someone else, even if it was just playing. With Shannon involved, things could go very wrong.

    Oh look, Monstro got some twigs and a pile of rocks.

    it’s true from watching the 1st Star Wars that Darth Vader doesn’t jump and yell. But they could have a dueling (fencing) match if they had a 2nd wand. It would be nice if this arc actually went somewhere i.e. between Bern and Shannon.

    I can see that Bernice will never have her own children or work with them as a counselor. That is fine, some people are just not good with kids. She was equally uncomfortable around her brother’s step kids.

    I get that all women don’t necessarily have the mommy gene. I didn’t get it, though I taught hundreds of kids how to ride horses over a 50 year career. But one tool a budding psychologist should have in her tool bag is a fun version of redirecting. You don’t want to play Star Wars with her? Fine. Think of something else. Surely she can see Shannon is a wired kid. If her eyes are open, she’s got a brain that works on overdrive. So something you can stomach that redirects her energy to something that is as shiny an interest catcher as playing Princess Leia.

    This continuing thread is still interesting to me, are the creators purposely tweaking the “In Crowd” by constantly bringing in their favorite characters to dislike and criticize. Honestly took longer than I thought it would to get around to Bernice, plus the added pleasure of having Shannon in the mix. Fun ensues !

    As said on another site: My God, how utterly joyless do you have to be to refuse to play “Star Wars” with a kid?

    As nice as it is to see someone not catering to Shannon for once, if Bernice doesn’t want to play with the kid then why is she watching her at all? Tell Jonah his daughter is his own problem today and they’re all too busy to be his free babysitter. If she’s not willing to indulge a little kid then why indulge deadbeat Jonah?
