My 2 year old is a very defiant one and has me gasping for air and sighing (which she then imitates!).
She thinks I'm a gas bag and pretty much laughs at my attempts to tell her no by saying no in return.
If I get really mad, she looks so hurt- very affective! What else can I do when she is pushing my buttons to get away from the power struggle and maintain some balance?
