My DD is 10 1/2 mos, and like her father, EXTREMELY curious and adventurous. She is so mischievious! I'm worried that she's going to be one of those kids that figures out how to open windows/doors, climb over gates, etc. I'd like to start teaching her what things are dangerous and/or off limits. She's already trying to torment our dogs. Right now we do a gentle "uh-uh" when she's off in a direction she shouldn't go. I've only given her a louder, sharper "No!" once when she was trying to stick her finger in an electric socket under my chair in the doctors office the other day (can you believe they don't put outlet covers in a pediatrician's office - especially on outlets hidden by chairs high enough for a little dude to crawl under?)
She's also started throwing temper tantrums (bucking and arching her back, shaking her fists, etc.) when we try to put her in her car seat.
Anyway, anyone have any good recommendations for, for lack of a better term, AP/ "gentle discipline" / preventing tantrums type books?
