Why toddlers don't do what they are told.
Very interesting article. What are your opinions on this? Will you change the way you tell your child something or do you do something that works for your household. Please share!

Well, that is already kind of what i did with my daughter anyway. I learned already that it's harder for her to do something unless i give her an explanation for doing it. If i TELL her to do it w/ no explanation as to why, it DOES seem to go in one ear and out the other. For instance, if i tell her to brush her teeth, she may stall, but if i say "brush your teeth, or do you want all those germs in your mouth making your breath stink?" she will run to go brush her teeth. But that is just how my child works, & I've come to learn that about her.
