one more thing... i have tried this Dr sears suggestion about the screaming and they say to put your finger to your mouth and say shhhhhhh pretty basic but i have been doing it all day...and also whispering "small voices" so i will try this for awhile and see how it goes. they also recommend going to a designated spot to scream and the child can only scream at this spot so if the child screams and isn't in his "screaming spot" then remind him where it is appropriate to...
i had a feeling i would get feed back about the smacking... my house is baby proofed quite well but its other situations like standing on top of his toy...trying to climb the chair and the screaming when he docent get his way. i have read a lot of info on the web that states at this age they do know how to manipulate the parents...not manipulation like adults or older kids can do by any means. My parents hit me and i would never ever dare to hit them back...i dont...
when i discipline my 18th month old he doesn't even seem to care...he just keeps doing his thing...if i tell him no an remove him from the situation he may scream or do nothing at all.... if absolutely needed i will smack his hand and he doesn't even care...how am i to discipline my child. i dont remember my daughter being like this...when his dad tells him no sometimes he may cry but with me...i get nothing...does he not respect me? am i giving him too much credit he is...

I was following her down that path, too, until recently, when I realized "um, I don't want to be that hectic." It's not the "badge of honor" I see my mom treat it as. I love my mom to death, but she makes me stressed out just hearing about her...
WHAT DO YOU GUYS think about this? from a website: First of all, baking soda is used as a dry shampoo for dogs or cats. As cleaners for pets are not covered by The Medicine Act of Health in Japan, it does not matter what compounds they contain. If something harmful happens, production is merely stopped. This can not be the case for a product applied to humans. In fact, there would be some problems if baking soda were used for shampoo/soap for humans. For...
