I recently posted about my 15mo DD jumping/running/standing on the couches, this hasnt changed unfortunately...
However, we now have a 1mo DS in the house too and she is getting a bit jealous and I dont know how to over come it.
Yesterday while DS was on his play mat she tried to stand on his head- I stopped her of course but dont want to have to be like hawk eye all the time.
How can I get her to start behaving better ie start listening when we say no (or if there is any other suggestions please) and stop climbing on the tables/chairs/couches, closing doors etc, I know she is young and wont really understand why she cant do it but she certainly understands no.
I have smacked her hand (I know, I know and I really dont want to be that type of parent so I keep it to extreme circumstances ie touching the oven while its on after we have said no and moved her away several times) and tried time out in her room, tried moving her away and distracting her, I just dont know what to try next.
I have told her in simple terms that 'you cant stand on your brother, it hurts him' etc but still it doesnt stop. I growl and it doesnt seem to get through she never listens.
Sometimew when I really growl, like Im really actually angry at her, she starts crying and all she wants is a cuddle which I give her. But then I feel like Im cancelling out my growling by doing it. But I feel so bad and it upsets me that I have made her cry like that. I hate being a grumpy mum but find it so hard to disipline her.
Sorry this is all over the place, Im just a bit upset/overwhelmed by it. I just dont know what to do.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
