to get my daughter ti listen
My daughter is almost 4 and she is not listening at times. If we say no she just keep on asking and hope we will say yes. I put her in time out and it work but then she does something else. Is there any other way I can get her to listen?
She's almost 4, Elizabeth? Hmm.. Have you sat her down to talk things through with her before giving her a time out? Telling her whatever she wants is just NOT an option.. taking it right off the table! Consistency is key!
O yeah I have done that also. I take thing off of her
I think young children try to get their way when they know we are busy or preoccupied. Perhaps give her a consequence for continuing to ask when you have asked her to stop asking? Take away a privilege a favorite show...something appropriate for her age and interests, which you know best.

I am a mom of one beautiful little girl who stole my heart the day she was born. I am happy at time that we move back home closer to family because it is easy when we need a babysitter the days I work. I enjoy taking pictures.
