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?

Mine is 2 1/2 and says all kinds of cute crap, he truly melts my heat some days with his cuteness, but, generally I still stick to the rules.

Quoting AmaliaD:

Puppy eyes and please only work for a short while. If my son wants his way he has to barter or bargain. Not that he isn't adorable but by age 7 it takes more. I figure this isn't a bad set up for life, if he has a wife or room mate learning to make concessions to get his way might be the most effective method for adults. And also teaching him to accept that something's can't change. His BFF got a jr dragster for her 8th bday, like a real kids sized race car(UNSAFE!!!!) that she will race next summer(drag racing like her father and gpa) And no amount of bartering will ever make me say yes to that gift, He said if we win the lottery could I have one, and even in that case, no way Jose.



When it comes to safety issues I have no problems saying no. I want to be able to see that same cuteness tomorrow too. My protective mommy side over rules my melting heart in those situations. I agree with the compromising idea bit I am actually going to make him write out proper arguments when he get's older. I got a bunch of books on how to formulate arguments in debates and if he can formulate a proper argument with good reasoning skills than I will relent as long as there are no safety concerns.
