  • do you follow your words up with action. Nothing like a mom saying "stop jumping on the bed" and the kids still is jumping. I have to get in there and stop the behavior. If its time to visit the potty and she blows you off , I'd stop my thang and say, "you can try it by yourself or I can help you get there" ~

  • Along with the rest, squat down to her level, hold both hands, and look her straight in the eye. It will tell her that you mean it rather than talking over her head.
