  • really, it'll be ok. it's important for you to be patient, flexible, and consistent with discipline. it's exhausting, raising a toddler. you'll do fine. i recommend you join a parenting group, where you and the little one go and meet others in your area for playtime. it's a good chance to bounce ideas off one another, & get someone else's insight and feedback. your county should offer free parenting classes, too. i hope this helps. remember, this stage is temporary. patience. good luck!

  • Jo Frost, from "Supernanny" has a book, "How to get the best from your children". It has worked wonders in our house. She teaches about the different developmental levels of your children based on their ages, so you can understand what they are realisticaly capable of as far as their memory, and understanding. She also delves into dicipline, and positive rienforcement. We now have a good behavior chart, with stickers, and we use the "naughty step" for time outs. At first I thought the methods in her book were too simple to work, but we tried them anyway, at our wits end, and we were pleasantly surprised. Good luck and hang in there.

  • Raising the strong willed child. by Dr. Dobson or How to make you child mind without loosing yours. I don't remember the author of that one.
