I don't want to go to the bathroom! I don't want that, I want cookies. I don't want to brush my teeeeeeth! *putting hands over mouth and going limp* (Agh.)
Does any of this sound familiar? First, it was "NO! Don't do that!" Then I stopped that behavior by saying, "I'll let you know what works for me/us..." Now, going through daily routines, especially in the morning, my 4 year old is crying and whining the whole time. He does what we say eventually, but very reluctantly.
So far I've been chucking up to "normal but difficult" behavior. What can I say to let him know I'm not going to put up with his attitude?
