Bonswa! I never understood when people said " pa okipe'l lespri lap fe" (when referring to kids acting crazy), what is lespri exactly, break it down.. mesi davans cheri

Dakò :)
They are actually saying, "Pa okipe l, espre l ap fè" - Don't pay any attention to him/her, he's faking. or Don't pay attention to him/her, he/she is doing this on purpose.

espre means intentionally, deliberately
okipe - to be busy, to pay attention to

Pa      | okipe             | l,             | 
Don't | pay attention  | him/her  |

espre            | l             | ap                            | fè      |
deliberately  | he/she   | progressive  marker | to do |
