I am babysitting the neighbors kid and although he is a few month younger than my 19 month old he acts much younger. He babbles, throws his food everywhere, drinks from a bottle, steals toys away, rips books, really just usual baby/toddler stuff. My dd speaks 4-5 word sentences, doesn't make a mess while eating, doesn't whine but asks if she wants something just normal stuff and since I have started babysitting him she has started to act like him and it's driving me nuts! She cries when I lay her down, throws her food, whines whines whines, babbles, and steals toys away from him! I know it's normal for a young toddler to do but she never did this before. I try to congratulate them if they are behaving good and don't pay attention if they are doing something bad but it isn't working.. and I can't handle this whining anymore! What to do? BTW I am not putting this child down I understand it is normal.Answer Question
