Ok so by now we alllll know that our 1 year olds are a little sassy, bratty, stubborn, and unresponsive to our "no, no's" and "Get down!!'s"...So my question to you ladies is how do you handle it?
My daughter lovess climbing up on the coffee table and getting into the china cabinet in the kitchen...I cannot tell you how many times I have spanked (lightly Tapped...no abuse here!!) and said no no to the actions that she should not be doing...and I KNOW for a fact that she understands me because she does respond to me, but she giggles and continues doing these things...She knows it's wrong because sometimes she will listen, and other times she is completely unresponsive..(I get that "Forget you Mom" look and turn away every time).
Any advice, suggestions, or solutions to the beginning stages of punishment and discipline for those who are not so well behaved are greatly appreciated! Thanks ladies!!
