What do I do about it?
I have DD (4) and DS (20months). Lately, DS is clingy, whingy, and tantrummy every time I give DD any attention at all. For example, this afternoon DD and I read a book, with the intention of drawing the characters afterwards. I set DS up with his Little People, and sat on the couch with DD. DS cracked it, tried to grab the book, push DD away and climb onto my lap all at once. The kids ended up clashing heads, book ended up on the floor, I ended up frustrated with two miserable kids.
Here are things I've tried:
Telling him calmly and sternly "no"
Sitting him in timeout
Including him in the activity, even though it defeats the purpose of time just for DD
So far, nothing works.
He is so clingy, I am currently hiding in the bathroom to write this! How low we stoop!
