I have a 14 mo old daughter and 5 week old son. We are having a couple problems with my daughter acting up and are just really not sure what to do about them. She is now throwing all out tantrums when she is told no. She is taking advantage of the time I am nursing to do anything and everything she isn't suppose to. I am wondering if anyone has any sugestions on how to handle...I do not believe in spanking for discipline (but sometimes I would like to)... we try to redirect to something else, but she is a very determined child.
She is also starting to be very ruff with my son... I do not think she is actually being mean.. just ruff. We stop her imeaditely and show her how to be nice, but it just doesn't seem to be sinking in.
One last issue. does anyone have a suggestion of things to do with her while nursing. We read a lot of books together.. but part of me feels like I am neglecting her b/c of round the lock nursing. She doesn't really have a long attention span yet, so somewhat at a loss of what to do with her calmly while nursing
