The smiley was the "embarassed" smiley b/c I really didn't understand, but, I have a better grasp now I think?
Anyway, she is 2.5 so she is verbal and is starting to answer back in the "correct" way when I ask her a question i.e. "Where did you put your cup" and she'll say "I dunno mommy" (it's too cute) instead of just staring at me when I asked the question.
My problem is more along the lines of when she doesn't get her way or is told to do something she doesn't want or think she should do she slaps/bites/kicks/knocks her 10yo sister's glasses off and I was just wondering about the science behind the behavior, i.e. their frontal cortex isn't formed enough so there is no impulse control or whatever and hoping maybe if I can understand the biology and science behind her behavior then maybe it will help me understand her better. Does this make sense?
