One of the miracles of life is watching how babies change and grow everyday
Brooke and Mackenzie at 10 days old
Hi, I’ve recently come across your page and I am really enjoying the read. I have a question, I have a 17 month old (almost 18) and I understand she doesn’t fully comprehend obeying my requests. However, I’ve worked with children under 5 for over 10 years but having my own is completely different. Since in a class like environment children tend to listen better and i just feel its easier from my experience. The other my toddler was playing with the fruit/veg and the shopping basket and she had all the food out on the carpet, she had seen me get my notebook out and now wants to mark make. I now ask her to tidy all the food up off the floor into the shopping basket before she can draw. I say lets do it together, she helps a little but end up doing majority of it and leave her a few fruits to put away and she refuses. I ask her many times and gesture taking away the pens and paper away from her a d point to tidying up the fruits, she just cries continuously (very loudly) with tears and says ‘no’ many times over. What would you suggest I do?
