A preschool child utters, "Nobody don't like me." What is an appropriate response by a teacher?

▸ Accept the utterance as a part of the child's rule-governed native language, and encourage and extend such constructions.

▸ Repeat this statement in its correct form, until the child learns to correct the erroneous syntax.

▸ Accept the utterance as a part of the child's rule-governed language, and adopt strategies to add Standard English as a second language.

▸ Gently point out the double negative in the sentence (e.g., "If nobody don't like you, then somebody does like you.").
