Wow it's 735am and ive already had enough if my 2yo's demands. It's soo draining i want to
Despite all my best efforts to encourage (AND Model) good behavior, she still doesn't do it. She never asks nicely, it's always "MIIILK!", "PICK.ME.UUUP!", "NO", "GET.MY.DUMMMY!" it's driving me nuts.
I always stop and correct her eg "get my dummy PLEASE mummy", and insist she says please and thank you, and if she won't ask nicely she doesn't get what she wants. Which results in endless tantrums.
When can I start saying 'no' because you didn't ask nicely, the first time? She just doesn't seem to 'get it' but she picks up other habits soo quickly eg. Mum put her to bed with a bottle of milk the other night, something I've never done, the next night (and since then) she's asked for a bottle to go to bed with. I've said no everytime but she still remembers/asks. So why doesn't she remember this?
I'm currently hiding in the toilet & she's bashing on the door yelling "KNOCK KNOCK" ah cant get a moments peace :sigh:
She's 26 months.
