Episode 77: When Your Child Refuses to Listen to You with Nicole H
When Your Child Refuses to Listen to You with Nicole H
Nicole’s 3 year old son has become so defiant since the birth of his baby brother who is now 10 months old. He says no to almost everything: putting on shoes, taking a bath, eating meals, brushing teeth, the list goes on. If you have a child like this and are tired of the escalations and all the conflict, listen along for some strategies to make this part of parenting so much easier.
“We know they want our time and attention ‘mommy, mommy, mommy’ And you're like i know you want to spend time with me. I know, I know, I know. We need to shift a little bit to ‘I really need alone time with you. I miss that. I miss that when we got to do these things together. Let's work on that. Mommy is going to work on that.’” - Sue Groner
