The Aprill 11 community is a little slow, so I want to ask here too since a lot of you have toddlers/older kids
How do you do it?
Nate is... feisty? Who am I kidding. He's a classic toddler boy. He wants things, and whatever it is should have been here 10 minutes ago.
He is getting way better at talking, but when he was little he used to scream when he wanted something. We taught him some sign language and that really helped. He would say please and more instead of yelling.
But suddenly he has gone right back to the yelling. He is incredibly possessive and disinclined to listen when told no. I understand that it's normal for them to try to push the boundaries, but how do we work to push back?
I am pretty pro-AP, but if I'm being honest I need something a little more... structured. This free-range toddler thing is getting to me.
