I dont like to throw around the word "naughty" so lets just say my DD (16mths) is extremely....spirited.
i know she is young and doestnt understand blah blah, but on some level i know she does. she is just so rough, when we have playdates she's the child running around stealing toys, climbing on other children, and sometimes hiting and biting. shes rough with me too smacking me and biting me, we talk about using gentle hands and she'll gently stroke my face to show me but then she's back to it again. she pulls on our blinds, plays with the light switches, climbs behind the tv around the cords. i get down to her level, make her look at me and say NO or STOP, explain to her why we dont do these things, she just pulls away and screams or laughs and tries to cuddle me.
I'm at my wits end.
am i alone cos i sure feel like i am, any tips or advice?? am i disicpling her in the wrong way...is it my fault????????
