  • Redirection. She's not doing anything to be bad. Yet. If she's trying to stick something in the trash, take her and get her interested in something else.

  • yes, just that age, a lot of the "anger" is just frustration b/c they can't express certain things. the fact that she pays that close attention to you, tells you she wants to be learning, but just not quite sure how to do it, so she shows frustration.

  • I think a lot of people forget that English isn't the ONLY language in the world and that CafeMom isn't just for Americans. OP, thank you for learning to read and write English as your second language!

    As for the question asked, I agree with redirection.
