This morning I was reading cnn.com and fell upon this article. After the day I had with Connor yesterday (can you say "2 year old boy"), I think I will give a few of these a try.
Quirky Discipline Rules That Work
If you have any additional tips,please share them. For instance,what do I do when:
*Before Connor's bath we discuss that the water stays in the bathtub...and yet he still manages to pour three glasses of water onto the floor. I took away the cup today, vowing never for it to return.
*After a few time-outs and "look at mommy" pleas, he still takes ALL the cushions off of the couch, jumps on the unmade couch and tumbles all over the cushions (I know, I should probably just start tumbling in there with him).
*Why does he take off his diaper so much? How can I get him to stop?
He really is a cute kid and most of the time I love the silly things he does, yesterday was just more than I could handle in one day.
