Your baby is 3. It wont actually matter who does the disciplining, when or where. She acts out because not for lack of disciplining but because of the confusion of the disciplining process and shes left feeling confused. She will figure out that while at one persons house, school, church, car, grocery store, park, the rules change with each situation. Sorry sweetie, its not just your Mommy, its the baby trying to figure out what rules apply 'where'. Be patient and not to strict, as it will only make matters worse. A constant reassuring guidance is all it takes , and a little more time...for her. Dont be the bad guy, be an understanding Mommy. ok?
