  • I turned it around and would either answer with yes or why. we would go rounds much like the am not am too battle, but i would never raise my voice. after about a month of this my 2yo has started actually answering my questions of why which has lead to some pretty interesting talks and stories. she does still do the no thing on occassion but nothing like she used too.

  • Easier said than done but ignore him. When he tells you know either continue talking about the topic or distract him with a new topic.
