The first night Sydnie was born was the worst night sleep I've ever
had...about one hour total. She was so angry and cried and cried, it was
miserable. I had feasted on Hot Wings right before I went into labor so
perhaps that didn't settle to well on her tummy. Regardless she wasn't
much happier the first few weeks of life no matter what I ate.
And frankly things haven't changed much, she still is a challenge. She's
whiny, defiant, pushes all my buttons, and is usually the only one
causing problems. We'll be riding in the car and everyone is happy as a
clam except Sydnie who is whining and crying in her seat. In fact she
screamed for the first 12 months of her life every time she came in
contact with a car seat. My husband spend a small fortune on ear plugs
and every trip was a stressful one.
Now she is a little over two years old and many things have gotten better especially now that she can talk.
However she still resorts to whining & crying in any given
situation and often hits or pushes her sister when she's angry. Part of
me says...relax she's two years old and another part of me says "why
on earth is she so difficult?!" I hate being the mom that tells her
child three times to stop before she actually does. Both Adam and I are
fully convinced she will do well in life I just don't know if I will
Does anyone have some advice on things that have worked well with
"strong-willed" children?? Any advice on whining?? Anything? Anyone? I'm
open to suggestions!
