So Debbie's post about her toddler talking back makes me wonder. How are you dealing with the big "No"? Does your toddler say it back yet? When your toddler repeatedly does something bad, what do you do?
TJ knows the things he is not supposed to do, like getting into specific cupboards etc. He now will go and stand at the cupboard, open it and then look at me and say "NO" or uh, uh, uhhhh... exactly in my no tone...
Or, he throw a block and say "NO".
My husband and I usually say when he throws something, "if you throw __________ momma/ daddy will take it away." He usually responds to this now and will just pretend like he will throw the item.
Its Peytons favorite word right now, NO this, NO that. Jade on the other hand starts crying as soon as she knows that what shes doing shes not supposed to. Peyton loves to tell us no, after we tell her no. I think shes gonna be a rough 2 year old. We tell her know 3 times if she continues we put her up in her crib for "time out" for a few short minutes. Usually solves what shes doing.
If Brantson has something he's not supposed to have and I tell him to give it to me, he will pull it to his chest and say "no" or "mine". I usually have to pry it from his hands which leads to an even louder "no" or "mine". But when he realizes that he's not getting it back, he moves on to something else.
Trey doesn't say the word no but he knows what it means! When Mark says no, Trey stops but when I say it (even in my meaner tone) it has no reaction and he just keeps doing it. I've been tapping the back of his hand lately and that is certainly getting his attention and he isn't being as naughty now.
Jehan doesnt say, "NO" back to me but he's constantly testing me. Like he'll open up the cupboards or atleast the ones he's not meant to be open and he'll look at me and then I'll give him this mean stare and he just starts smiling. Other times however he will listen and will crawl away from whatever it is he's doing. Sometimes though I have to physically remove him to get him to stop. He doesnt like it and sometimes throws a tantrum but it doesnt last very long.
