    I followed what Harvs was saying (it was obvious to me what the underlying point was ...) and I agree. Hence why I questioned who would disagree.

    True. However there is just an extra aura of knobiness with the phrase 'respectful parenting.

    Don't feel awful. I still walk away or loose my patience sometimes. Being home with a toddler when you're pregnant and sleep deprived is mentally and physically draining. But I am actively trying to ensure I change my approach because with him I do find that staying with him and trying to be more patient and calm works so much better with his personality than my other reactions.

    I have to add, that while I gave a run-down of what works well with my daughter, it's often not what I actually do. I do more than my fair share of losing my **** with her over unimportant stuff...but I'm getting better. What I stated was what WORKS here, and what I TRY to do. It can be bloody hard work putting what you want into practice though.

    I just wanted to thank everyone who contributed to this thread. I have been reflecting on our relationship and whilst her feelings are as important as everyone else in the family, I do need to put my foot down and stand my ground at times.


    Also she has come down with a UTI and throat infection this weekend so I'm hoping this monster behavior is due to her not feeling well. She's on antibiotics so I hope my chilled out kid is back soon!
