20 hand slaps, 3 bottom "reminders", and 4 timeouts...

and still.....still.....Livvie is doing the SAME thing we are trying to teach her NOT to do.

She thinks she's the cutest thing (well, she is) when she goes over to my chair at my desk, pulls it out, and climbs up on top. She then proceeds to play around with the mouse, and everything she can grab before she is caught.

It's like she has "naughty radar"

The second she sees that I leave the room, her sneaky little self runs over to the chair...again and again.....

urgh....

I hate hand slaps, I hate bottom "reminders", and I hate timeouts...

Miss Livvie has not learned her lesson after 2 days of the "reminders" we keep giving her...

Let's hope tomorrow is a tad better.....

I'm finding this age frustrating as well. The Love and Logic principles I use on Sam work on Julia too as long as I'm consistent with her. Most libraries have a copy of the book so you don't have to shell out $25 for it at a bookstore. just a thought.

Hope today is better for you!

We are having the same problem with our 16 month old! If we leave the door open he gets to the computer chair as fast as he can. Then he loves to play with the mouse and he has even started climbing on the desk.

I have not known how to handle it -did not know if he was old enough for discpline yet. But I guess it is time.

Alyssia is the same way with coloring devices. Anything she can color with she finds it and colors on anything but paper and while starting to color she looks at you out of the corner of her eye to see if you are looking at her. Testing, aren't they?

We had a problem with Abby and the behind the door bumpers when she was 18months. We asked some local parenting experts and they said to get her her own so she could play with just that one and leave all the others alone. Maybe if you got an old mouse etc. and set it up, then she would have her own.

Audrey was SOOO the same way at that age.. actually it was when she hit about 20 months... but know what? after about a month of doing all those "reminders" she finally is somewhat controlled! :) She HATES timeouts and the simple mention of one usually helps the behavior a bit. Bear in there - it doesn't last forever... or hopefully not :) ha ha.

She is probably doing it because she see's you on it and she loves you and wants to be like you?

Hah, i dont know... but, I have recently started working at the YMCA in the daycare part, and it seems that if the kids know they are not supposed to be doing something, and then if they do it again, just ignore them... give them zero attention, they will lose interest in it. You've probably already tried this, so, sorry if my advice is useless. Haha.

Oh, by the way, there is a little girl that comes in at work, and she looks EXACTLY like Avery, they could be twins, her name is Genesis.
