DS has found my kryptonite! I am in trouble.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I am usually really good at not falling for the cute toddler looks when they are bad or want something. Unfortunately DS has found that one thing that makes me crumble. He 22 months and learned to say please (which comes out as peas). When he says it all cute and gives me those puss in boots eyes I turn into mush and give in. I can't help it.

Does anyone else have this problem?

My little man, who is 21 months, comes up to me, stretches his arms out and says "mommy up".  All while moving his fingers like he is pinching something.  So freaking cute!!!

Pfft. Psychological degrees are not needed for raising a child. Common sense is. Your child is not your friend.

Nope, I don't give in to my kids. I'm the parent.. 






Lol, I am the parent too. There is a term in psychology called positive reinforcement. When he uses manners in a situation he is learning that he will get more out of life. We are talking about getting a couple extra cranberries at snack time, one more hug, or reading the same book 10 times. It's not like I am letting him run the streets and watch violent movies. There is no need to be militant to be a good parent.

Yes! My 5 year old still has that adorable cute face and sweet little voice and all he as to do is say, "Mommy, I'm sorry."  I just melt and it makes it hard for me to be mad at him or punish him.

So clearly you have a LOT of growing up to do. Please don't have any more children until you do.
