I read this online today:
Conviction, determination, and tenaciousness are all as much a part of being strong willed as are incurable temper tantrums. So my 'parenting the strong willed toddler' tip of the day is to learn to look at these battle of the wills differently. Learn to see what could become rather than what is at the immediate moment.Hmmm, sounds a little like me, minus the tantrums part.
I keep praying for patience, but really, I would just like someone to tell me what I need to do to see more of the sweet girl I know is hiding down inside this toddler. Anyone got some good advice? Or at least some parenting books I could read?
Terrified for when we bring the new baby home.
