My daughter Molly is 10 months younger than her three year old brother. Aidan was a challenge at two and had tantrums and such.
Molly is having me throw my hands up in the air...
Any and all suggestions would be helpful.
Molly tries to break things intentionally. She doesn't care if she goes to time out 17 times in a row. She constantly the moment you turn your back grabs anything and all things that are off limit. If we go out to say story time (which we did today) she clears books, screams until we have to leave.
I try and interest her in painting, drawing, reading, cooking (play and real.) She has no interest in TV and is driving me insane lately.
I have tried NO time outs and positive reinforcements. That hasn't changed anythng.
I don't believe in hitting kids, but Molly will bite my son and kick and hit me. I have spanked her on occasion.
I am desperate to have her interested in something....I am desperate to make a deeper connection with my only little girl.
Maybe I had an exceptional two year old the first time round, maybe this is a phase but I need some feedback pls.
Thanks for reading
