  • Um I'd say so, lol.  My youngest is 15 months old.  I think they don't really know what they are doing yet.  Almost everything is still a game.  Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy!

  • Absolutely. I feel like I am talking to myself half the time. Trying to get my 16 month old ready in the morning is like herding cats. I am forever looking for him, chasing him, calling him. They say it passes, just not soon enough!

  • Are you actively involved in teaching him to listen to you? If you aren't, you can't expect him to pay any attention to you. If you are and he still isn't listening to you, you probably need to change the way you present the lessons.

  • Be consistent and he will get it. He is young but should be starting to get what no means.
