What discipline techniques I use
Right now, Avery is just starting to throw tantrums and get into trouble. She's too little to get timeouts. She won't sit so I usually just grab her and take her away from whatever she was doing wrong. I'll firmly, but calmly explain what was wrong. She's usually not listening because she's too busy screaming, but I figure it can't hurt. I hold her in my lap until she calms down and then I let her go back to playing. If she goes right back to the bad activity (i.e. playing pulling all the DVDs off the shelf) I grab her again and make her sit in my lap. Eventually she figures out that if she doesn't play with the DVDs mommy will let her be.
