my daughter has been so bad latley.

OK! So lately my daughter has been getting into everything. I cant keep up with her and her messes. And when we go to restaurants she hardly eats. She's more interested in everyone around us. She throws her food all over. I don't know if its just faze or what. Because she eats just fine at home. I just keep thinking she just might be going through terrible 2's early or something. Shes only 17 months old. So what can i do to get her to start minding like what kind of punishment is appropriate for her age?

  • Sounds perfectly normal for a little kid in a restaurant - mine range in age from 2 to 8 and none of them do good in a restaurant!

  • i stopped taking my son out to eat. I figure its just an age and excitement thing for him - some kids can handle it, some kids are too active or excited for it at this age. If you Do take her out, make sure its a loud kid friendly place so YOU are not as affected by her reactions also. I notice the more upset I get, he feeds off that and often acts even worse
