Hi my name is Cindy, I am 29 now and really feeling old:( I am happy to be part of this group even if its just for alittle while.
I have two boys, 5 & 7 and they are wonderful little joys of life. Even if the challenges are hard at times. My boys are complete opp. if one says on the other says off. My oldest is very strong willed and while that will be a great character to have as he gets older it is very difficult to deal with now as the parent. My other child is very easy going, happy all the time, greatful, just a complete joy. I love my boys both the same but who ever said parenting is the hardest job, made a huge understatement!!
Anyone out there have any good tips for dealing with a strong willed child let me know, we can compare notes. I have read lots of books and have had great success with different things but what I have learned is things work for awhile then they need to be changed. My moto is try lots, use it while it works, then try again, and never stop coming up with new ideas.
So if anyone has anything to share drop me a line.
