Thank You Dr. Laura

"Laaaaaaaaaaaa!" (sung high and exultantly) I was a little hasty in my last posting. After I'd vented and finished my post on what to do with a 4 year old stuck on "no!" I thought I'd check out Dr. Laura's website. I know she can be mean sometimes, but I love Dr. Laura. She's one of the few in the media that speaks up for the family and conservative values. Anyway, on her site she had a link on the left hand side that said "stay-at-home," so I clicked on it, and there was my answer: how to get through to your preschooler. "Laaaaaaaaaaa!" I clicked on it and found this. It talked about the very thing I am currently frustrated with- a 4 year old stuck on "no" and the frustrated parents that don't know what to do. Check it out here. I'm sure it will be helpful to all those going through what I'm experienceing. If you have anything of your own to add please do! Heaven knows there can never be too much help in this department!

Oh wow! You must have been inspired to go to that website. What a great article. I need to read it again, and again, and again, so that I can have some of those things stuck in my head so that when I meet defiance, I know what to do, or what to do before I meet it. Thanks so much. That will help me. I am not very good at making things fun, so I am going to try that.

So your 4 year old is just barely hitting the "no" stage? My son is 2 1/2 and has been terrible about telling me no since we brought our second baby home early this month. I will have to check out Dr. Laura's site to see what she has to say.

Thanks
