My son definitely knows when he is doing something wrong. He understands no and even shakes his head no at me and says "uh uh." (NO idea where he got the uh uh thing from.) He smirks when he is about to get into something like a cord/outlet.
He throws TANTRUMS when he can't reach something he wants and will jump all over you screaming to get something you have. I never give in. I have tried ignoring him, telling him "no fits please" slapping his hand lightly, and moving him into a quiet area. What are other ok techniques for a child so young?
I am desperate not to be one of those moms who every one thinks does not discipline her child.
Other than when he doesn't get his way, he is the happiest and sweetest baby ever!
