AHHHH! So, I thought terrible twos were bad! My nearly 3 year old has lost her listening ears! She went from this sweet child who did everything mommy said, was REALLY well behaved and super polite, to this little demon monster!!!
She will not do anything I ask her to, she won't pick up toys, she won't get dressed, she won't take bath or go to bed...nothing! I am "up to here" with it!!!!
But, when we go to Nana's house, or Grandma's house, or anywhere where other people will be around, she's back to my perfect little angel! Did I mention our twin girls just turned 1?
What do I do? I've tried time-outs, taking away toys and priveleges, I even swatted her butt...twice. First off, I hate spanking her, so that's a no go. Is this something I'm just supposed to ride out? Do I get MORE strict with her? I feel like alllll I do all day is tell her no, go to time out, give me that, don't do that, was that nice? etc etc etc. I do tell her when she's behaving well and what not, but there's just so much naughty behavior going on right now!
