I'm after some tips on how to keep cool calm and collected with DD1 who is 2 next week but well and truly terrible! I can handle the rudeness, tantrums and defiance but she is very aggressive towards us, her sister and starting towards other kids. It's the biting, hitting, kicking, scratching and general roughness that makes me do my lolly. I'm turning into a mum I never wanted to be- one that shouts at her toddler all day!
I have tried counting to 10 and deep breathing which helps sometimes.
We do naughty corner, time out, positive reinforcement etc. I'm more after coping strategies for myself!
