Our playroom is so quiet. I hope some of you are still around.
Sophia has been a handful since she has been 1 and a half years old. Tantrums daily. Hitting, kicking, pulling my hair. Whining, crying, you name it. Time outs every day. It was bad.
Now it's like she is testing a new strategy? Since a week she is super nice, saying "Thank you" and "please" for everything. She does what I tell her. It's like a different child. I love it. Is this just a phase and she will go back to her demanding self? I enjoy this very much but am hesitant to think that she is going to be nice from now on.
Im still here! Joey went thru a bad phase right around the time he turned 2, especially in the few months before his birthday. But I was also pregnant and had a baby end of august. I would say he has been better for the past 2 or 3 months, and I hope it stays this way.
I think when they start to communicate better the 'please and thank you' phase comes out, which is great. they start to understand consequences (all those time outs pay off after a while) and see that you reward them for better behaviour. glad that she's behaving better for you.
however the testing phase will happen again when she reaches 4ish and starts school. I am going through it with my 5 year old for the past 1 1/2 years now. It is draining!!! But eventually they do grow out of it as well.
