Sighhhh! Ahhh! Chemicals! Sorry, I agree with nextcommercial. This is a crush. Maybe worth having a little word with the young man (appologise for the phases she is going thru, no need to feel that he has to wave at the window the whole time he's out there, just hello and goodbye etc thank him for being so noce about it etc) but you'd best let this burn itself out. nice

I so so so agree. Except that actually it never works, even when it seems to, that is just a random success A hint for the...
Echoing some of the comment above, "don't beat yourself up". Hitting any child shows a deep lack of understanding of parenting and the roles and responsibilities of adults and roles and abilities of children, but to hit a child under 3 is for and reason is a red flag. Some homework for your DH is in order. We guys like to watch rather than read. Why don't you get him some Super Nanny (Jo Frost) DVDs to watch. I believe she has done both a US and a UK series. Anyway,...

don't do swim lessons
I remember this! We took more time. Tough sometimes, but we followed her around a bit in the store or where-ever. (didn't always work) Then we involved her by asking her for the things on the list, (sometimes drawn in advance with pictures), (didn't always work) or handed things for her to put in the push-chair (didn't always use a trolly), (didn't always work) or, if we were lucky, had her in the child seat in the trolly, telling us where to go. (didn't always...
Prolly you have done the 'get down to her level and look her in the eye' bit.... and the calm 'Mum and dad don't want you to do that, do you understand' bit right?
