These days Aiden gets first dibs on things – which makes sense why Mommie is bored.
It’s not easy to be a parent these days, our latest challenge with Aiden is teaching him that hitting is not okay.
Not things, people, or himself.
But his temper and impatience (wonder where he got that from? haha), makes it tough.
It’s not just when he is frustrated but when he is hyper as well.
One Saturday morning Daddie held onto Aiden’s hands for a good 30 minutes.
At first he refused to say sorry.
He kept fussing and crying and wouldn’t budge.
In the end, he did apologize, but it had become more and more like a battle.
We are trying to think of what we can do to make Aiden understand what is best for him.
Suggestions are welcome!
He is starting to climb up the sofa to reach for things on top of the mantelshelf.
Another dangerous activity!
On top of that he recklessly goes down the stairs, knowing we are there to hold onto him.
He wants to get into his bathtub without taking off his clothes first.
Brushing his teeth has still been a battle, so we are trying out a different tactic.
But that only worked for 2 days and then back to square 1.
We did notice that he’s saying a lot more English words though.
So we continue on this journey of tackling one challenge at a time!
