So, I know this might sound silly, but at 19 months, dd is hitting her T2s already. She hits, screams, throws toys, bites, throws tantrums...
I honestly don't know what to do!
Here's her background:
Dh and I live with his grandparents. Dh and I spoil her, when she deserves it. His grandmother is slowly getting better and coming to our side (as if she shouldn't be already as she's our child... but...) Papa is still drop everything on a dime and give her whatever she wants. Yesterday, for example, she had 7 popsicles. 7!!! In 12 hours!!!! WHAT THE FUCK!?
All she eats is McDonalds! I say no, he does it anyways!! Dh says no, they yell at him and tell him he's going to starve her.
She doesn't even sleep in a crib anymore. She's been co-sleeping with papa since about 10 months old. A, that pisses me off, and b, they get mad because he has to get up with her every night. Well, firstly, dh and I can't hear her. We'd get those baby monitor things, but dh says that's really creepy to listen in on his grandpa. I agree. I refuse to let dd co-sleep with us, but we can't break her of the habit now that they took the crib down.
Moving out at this point is not an option. We don't have the finances for it.
How are you/did you deal with this? We ignore her when she screams until she realizes we're not going to feed into it... well, until papa rescuses her like she's dying.
