  1. Ah, this is a technique from one of my favorite parenting books, Scream Free Parenting.

    Most of a child’s misbehavior, or “not okay” behavior, it nothing more than a cry for attention, good or bad. My 2 yr old does this all the time. While a firm reprimand from his daddy works, the only thing that works for me is ignoring him. The more I tell him no, send him to the chair to sit, or take things away from him, the more he argues back. It’s an attention thing for sure.

    Mine is 2. Man, what a challenging age!!

  2. AJ responds to both myself and my husband the same way no matter what. Gosh lucky that yours at least responds to his father. Yes 2 is a tough age! AJ will be three in August.

  3. I congratulate you for being smart enough and humble enough to know you needed help. What a gift to your son. I highly recommend the book, “Kids Are Worth It” by Barbara Coloraso.
