Hey everyone!
This morning I had to go to the grocery and I was leaving our 2 year old with Dad. They were at a standoff because our 2 year old threw a muffin on the floor and wouldn't pick it up. By the time I was ready to leave it had been 30 long minutes. I told my husband to just take her to the muffin and tell her we don't throw food on the floor. She was not going to hand him that muffin and now she was to upset to hear him anymore. He said our child was not going to be defiant. I agree they need to be taught to listen, but it was a muffin and it went on for 1 1/2 hours!! Finally she picked it up and he felt he won. I'm sure she was just hungry from the time outs and tantrums! I know he means well, but come on pick your battles and save your strength. Have a great afternoon everyone.
