    Good luck @Soon2be4! Maybe you could try involving her in the things that make you busy with Bub? She may like the responsibility, even if it is only something small. It means that she is getting attention and being involved. Just a thought.

    Wow she sounds gifted! My ds is 16 months and not doing most of that stuff yet.

    I think more stimulation could help...a new park/playground, playcentre. If you can afford it maybe see if there is an occasional care near you? My ds just started at one and like your dd he is very sociable. He loves it so far!

I would explain why what she was doing was a bad idea, and give her alternatives. Like, "Mikayla, climbing the couch like that is really dangerous honey, you could fall and hurt yourself and that would make mummy really sad. Maybe we could go outside and play on the swings or trampoline instead?" That sort of thing. Rather than just constant "GET DOWN" "GET DOWN NOW OR YOU"LL HAVE TO GO TO THE NAUGHTY CORNER" sort of thing. That sort of discipline would have never ever worked for her. In fact it still doesn't.
    I do this too. Except much simpler language, fewer words for my ds. I've read at this age they are really to young to stop what they are doing just because you tell them to stop. They don't have the impulse control.

    I'm currently reading Toddler Tactics by Pinky McKay and ToddlerCalm by Sarah Ockwell-Smith which i have found very useful.

    Hmm I may have to have a read of one of these. She is pretty good if redirected to something else and she often will stop if I say stop ie at the side of the road or reach up to hold my hand if we are crossing the road etc.

    Tonight she wanted an apple after dinner and pointed to the fruit bowl there were apples, pears and bananas in there I said do you want some fruit she nodded I said do you want a pear she stared at me so I said do you want a banana she stared and then shook her head no. She then made the figure of a circle with her finger and I said do you want an apple and she said yes. Like wow mind blown!
