if you had a 17mo whos play was going around the house knocking things over, dumping things out, throwing things down, tearing things up
would you try and direct gently that towards something else
just let her do it as much as she wanted, its a her age and a phase
let it go but at (insert age here) start trying to direct her?
do you think that high pitched screaming when she wants something, doesnt want something, or feels like you are not paying attention to her should be ignored? responded to? ask her to stop?
|what about other stuff you dont like- hitting, bashing the computer, etc? I almost never say "NO", i try and change the situation, but that isnt always possible, and she doesnt seem to understand NO yet.|
|Im just not sure what the "right" thing to do is[...]|
|at this age. She not a tiny baby but she not a kid yet really.....|
Well, I've been absent for 8 months, and during that time, it turns out that I have completely transformed. You are all precious. Thank you for being here and sharing your lives. You are truly a gift. Jan. 23, 2012
