I have an adorable little girl who just turned a year old... problem is she acts like she is 2!! She is the size of a two year old and has just as much attitude.
I try telling her "no" and she looks right at me, chuckles and does it anyways. If you move her away from what you don't want her to touch she just screams and arches her back, kicks her feet, the whole nine yards. I didn't expect her to be such a handful so soon! What can I do?
I put her in time-out (in a playpen) for 1-2 minutes when she has tantrums, it helps her calm down, but in two mins she is back doing whatever she you told her not to a few minutes before.
She is also very very demanding... yells for whatever she wants... if she wants something she can't have... omg look out!
Anyone else in the same boat? Any techniques for dealing with this kind of behavior?
