I have been having problems with DD (2yo) for awhile now. She is extremely high spirited, energetic, stubborn - hmm well she is alot like me!
I have felt like every time i try to do something with her i should be putting on battle gear before i even start. Tantrums, not listening, picking up toys, bed time, meal times - you name it. I actually broke down at the DD's child care centre a few weeks ago - she had bitten yet another child and it took three of us to catch her because she didnt want to go home.
One of the ladies suggested i get my hands on the 123 magic dvd. I did. I watched about 20 mins of it and went to turn it off - there was no way this would work on her. DH made me watch it and it was pretty confronting. I spent the next few hours pretty upset, i felt like a huge faliure.
DH and i sat down and talked about the DVD and decided to try it.
IT WORKED - after the third try!! She stopped a ful blown tear down the walls, rip the doors of the cupboard tantrum and went to her room - on the count of 2!!!
OK so it is still early days but i am keen to know if anyone else has tried this method and what they found the experiance to be.
There is a 2nd dvd out and i am trying to get my hands on it!!
