My 13 month old daughter is so precious, she is smart, determined and also has a strong personality. She is going through a stage that she wants what she wants when she wants it... And there is nothing getting in her way. Whenever I take something away from her like a toy while I am changing her or an inanimate object she shouldn't be playing with, she gets really angry, throws a tantrum and it can get ugly. Today, I took the A & D ointment away from her and she slapped me in the face. I am a Christian and I do believe that we should not spare the rod (within reason) but I had to discipline her. Her reaction was a favorable one and it seems like she understood that hitting mommy is NOT OK!! IT HURT ME MORE THAN IT HURT HER TO DISCIPLINE HER... But is it too early for this kind of discipline?? She is only 13 months??
