She's stubborn! I have no idea where she gets it from
It makes everything difficult because if she doesn't want to do something, she just repeats "No" over and over. She's squirm herself down in to a ball so that I can hardly even pick her up to make her do what she needs to do. It's TOUGH!
Extreme clinginess and zero independent play skills while at home (he is a diifferent kid at home than while out and about)
Picky eating...but he has always been like that.
Listening to everyone BUT ME! She's an excellent and fairly easy kid, but my goodness she doesn't like me so much these days.
jessicada76:Well, I am going to list more then one also. Hitting - I think it started as a game and laughing at her because she was smiling and being cute so that was where we went wrong and now I can't stop her. Also not talking - she can't communicate so it makes it hard to know what she wants, and finally doing things just to get a reaction - I know I shouldn't ignore her but it seems to make her stop. If I tell her no or remove her from what she is doing it just makes her do it more.
Not when she needs something, but I think in this situation, Ignoring is just what you need to do. Esp since it's working.
She's just wanting neg attention. Since she's not getting it, she'll stop.
With DS our biggest things are hitting. ?He laughs his head off when you tell him no hitting. ?It is beyond frustrating. ?
He stopped putting himself to sleep. ?It started about 2 months ago and it's been a battle ever since. ?He was doing great and then 1 day bam no more putting himself to sleep. ?
He's also starting to whine/tantrum. ?Woo hoo let the toddler tantrums begin! ? ?
hmmm, the whining would have to be at the top of my list..
Carson:."uh, uh, uh, aaaahhhhhh!!!!!!"
Me: "Carson, that is not how we ask for things what do we say?"
Me: "Please what? Tell mommy what you want use your big boy words. Please (fill in blank)"
Carson: "Gank goo!"
I WISH I DID NOT HAVE TO REPEAT THIS A THOUSAND TIMES A DAY!!! WHEN IS IT GOING TO STICK!?!
oh and we have definitely entered the mine phase. mine, mine, MINE!!!!!!!!!!!
Read2Me:She learned how to say no and she's not shy about using it!
Ha ha! ?Isn't it amazing how fast they pick that up.?
Picky eating, hitting, and being bossy. He bosses everyone around, even the other kids in his class at daycare. His teachers will tell me whenever DS sees another kid doing something wrong, like climbing up on the table, DS will yell, for example, "Mason! Get down!! One...Two...Three!" He will even count them down and shake his finger at them. Yikes!
I think another thing that is difficult right now is trying to figure out the best method of discipline to use with him. Timeouts? Ignoring? Redirection? Taking away toys? A combo of these?
spitting..he got that from watching baseball
sliding into his sister and the baby I watch when they are sitting on the floor so he can knock them over
WHINING!! OMFG!!! He is a "late talker" has about 4-5 object words, and nothing else. so he WHINES when he wants something. We get down to him and say, use your words, point to what you want.
We are SOO ready to slap him- never would, but we are SOOO frustrated with it. The older he gets, the more he whines. i am not even sure what to do anymore!!
