  • Either you don't permit unpleasant behavior and she does, or you provide attention and she doesn't. You are also a diversion.

  • my DH was deployed and in Iraq for 15 mos of dd's life. He got home and became a new face! She listens to EVERYTHING he asks her to do but when I say it, she gives me an evil grin! I think it is because they know what buttons they can push on one parent and are learning the other one! It was the same thing with my parents, we never listened to my mother very well, but as soon as daddy came home it was a WHOLE other story! My dd is 2 btw, and DH has been home for 3 mos now.
