I am just wondering if anyone else has a very headstrong and independent baby? or should I say toddler. my daughter is unbelievably headstrong and opinionated already.

I have to agree, our little Ruby is very head strong and independent. It doesn't help that she is a little red head either (was born auburn but has lightened up)! I also have the same problem as Corry, try to get her older sister to pack anything up, she will just go and pull more things out and start the mess all over again, which upsets Lucy (4) very much. She also doesn't like being told no, especially from her Daddy. She attempts to be a little boss and has started pulling Lucy's hair if she doesn't like what her big sister is doing. I am soooo pleased to hear that there are others out there dealing with the same strong headed, independent child like me.

Quoting Nicole:

I am glad to know that I don't have the only little Diva on here...LOL... It is really rough because not only is she an only child, but I am too.... There can only be one queen of this castle and I was here first!!!... Seriously, she is extremely intelligent and extremely pushy. I want to make sure that she is independent and not stifle her but also do not one that obnoxious kid that can't be dealt with. It is a very thin tightrope to straddle.


Oh Nicole, you just made me laugh so hard! I love the line that there can only be one queen and you were here first! If only I could get that through to both of our girls! Especially the youngest, Miss Ruby. I agree, we want them to be independant, but I can't handle little 'brats' so she can't become one!

Seems that it's the girls who are the head strong little ones!
My little girl is very head strong! She has to do almost everything herself and when she doesn't get her way she has a nasty tantrum, and her favorite word is "NO"! We definitely have a "world war 3" in our house, especially when my 4 yr old son is playing with something or putting something away that she wants! Yesterday I told my son clean up all the toys because I was going to take them to the park, she didn't like that so she spread all of the coloring books throughout the living room. As my son was putting them away, my little girl had a screaming fit. She grabbed his head and smashed her head into it 3 times! My poor son has 2 bruises on his forehead from her doing that to him yesterday!
It's nice to know that there are others out there who have head strong little girls that are the same age as mine, I'm not alone!

yes my daughter is in her eyes the boss

we set limits until she hits them we let her go we try not to stop her being herself

i believe if you set to many boundrys at this age you can hurt their self esteem

I have a very head strong 17 month old daughter. Everything has to be done her way or no way. And she has to do everything herself i can barely stand behind her when shes climbing on something, even though i am not touching her.
