Is anyone else's little one screaming their heads off when you tell them No? I do not know how to make Amy stop the screaming she does is constantly... Even when I'm changing her Diaper.... She just screams and throws herself on the floor just screaming bloody murder.. just because I told her No... It's stressing me out so much. Is it because she might be getting too spoiled.... I have a feeling it's because DH's mother is constantly taking her and mimicing what she does and laughing at it...(which is annoying..) and Amy thinks it's okay because of it. I want to Tell DH to tell his mom to stop doing that and put a little discipline by telling Amy No when she screams.. I already dislike DH's mom for other reasons and because Amy is acting like this doesn't make anything better...
Also is anyone little one biting... because Amy has been biting DH and I and I don't know where she learned it from but it hurts..
Definitely understand the biting and crying when you say no. Zach's been biting for the past week and thinks it's funny, and then when you go to change his diaper he tries to flip over and when you hold him down he just screrams.
Siera lunges and bites me but only when I REALLY piss her off. And she throws temper tantrums as well when I say no but I just let her scream/cry it out. I want her to understand that no means no and I won't change my mind. So acting like I don't care when she screams is part of the torture but I'm hoping she'll get over it soon.
Definitely throwing tantrums. If he can not have what he wants or get to a place that is blocked off. Get use to it. They will learn the boundaries you set and then after a while they decide to test them then they settle down and after a while test again. This will happen their entire lives and it is what they are supposed to do.
Thank You Justine *SandKmommy* for an awesome siggy
Thanks for the replies. Yeah Amy bites for attention and when she is mad... she will even bite herself if I'm holding her hand I don't understand why she does that but okay... and I don't have a problem with letting her scream out her anger but MIL always comes in to get her and it pisses me off when she does that because it's not teaching Amy anything except that it's okay to do that for attention... I watch how when DH's brother puts their two year old son to sit in a chair for time out and he cries and DH's parents just let him out... I don't know how I'm going to tell them to keep Amy in time out when she gets older because DH's family Peeves the bleep out of me.
RJ has been throwing tantrums for a while now, and its only getting worse. So lately when he starts I tell him no firmly and if he continues I completely ignore him, even walk out of site. (his site, I keep an eye on him lol) and I go back a few seconds later, usually he has stopped and I see if he'll behave. If not I tell him no and sit and just pay no attention that he's throwing a tantrum. I'll read my book or watch tv, fold laundry etc. He ALWAYS stops and looks at me because he's not getting attention, positive OR bad. It works, and he has realized that tantrums don't get him what he wants. I think at this age, they don't care weather it's good or bad attention, they jsut know they are getting it.
Zadie throws herself in the floor when I take something from her she can't have or when I move her away from something dangerous/destructive she's getting into. I just ignore her and she goes about her business.
She fusses every time I change her diaper, so I keep a stash of toys on the changing table and hand her one when I put her up there. It keeps her happy long enough that I don't have to struggle with her.
Good luck with the in-laws! I'd be really ticked if I had people ruining my discipline methods.
Well, Presley doesn't bite (yet) but she has started throwing tantrums...a lot! Ugh...it wears us out! I will be the first to admit that I need to be more firm but usually what she is crying about is she wants me to pick her up or walk around with her, so it makes me sad and I give into her in those situations. I'm trying to be more firm though. She is an angel when she is at her sitters, probably b/c she has an 18 month old to play with all day and doesn't feel the need to try to be held as much or be walked around b/c she isn't bored.
