What do you know if terms of parenting a 17month old? Am i supposed to be saying "no" to things like when she wants a bath not during bath time or giving her a "cookie." I have a hard time saying no because I accidentally said "cookie" and was the one who brought it up. Or... she saw me drawing a bath for myself and I forgot to hide the fact. Any advice? Or do I let her cry if distracting her from her object of affection doesn't work. Should I take a class- get a book? My instincts are failing me.

I also have to say I do let her do whatever she wants usually because she is such a nice baby and doesn't ask to do harmful things, even though it's hard to get her to sleep. What's an early bath once in a while? Is there such thing as too strict?
