Anyone done "Love and Logic" with a toddler??
Any suggestions from anyone about discipline tactics, reading materials, etc. for the toddler years????
Let me tell you: my child does not share well with others, especially on his home turf.
After removing my child from the room today during a playdate...I said to Gage, "If you don't share your toys with the other children, they aren't going to want to play with you. They'll want to just go home."
His response, "I want 'em to just go home and leave my toys alone!"
He'd rather just play with me. He'd rather not have friends over. He'd rather not share.
What is this???????????????
But, yesterday, he & Aubri played here nicely. I don't get it.
My child does NOT like to share.
We've got to work on this every day.
But, I must say: my mommy friends were super troopers for sticking it out for a while, allowing us our teaching moments, and showing Gage that they can share, and their babies can share...etc.
If I don't address this now---I won't be doing him any favors in the long run, right? I mean, I don't want him to show up to kindergarten & not have any friends b/c he's a greedy-gut. Yes, I know that toddlers are going to go through the "Miiiiine" phase. This is more than the "miiiiiiiiiiiiine" phase. All 4 of us today agree that clearly my child has a problem with sharing, particularly here in his home.
I'm ready for naptime.
