Re: Toddler behavior chart?

I think, in general, a rewards chart for being well behaved will work with some 2yos.

But.. you are talking about a major life transition for her with this new baby. And you do not, do not, do not, want to discipline for her adjusting to being a big sister.

I really like this article:

particularly this strategy:
(Oh! And we also talked to the baby about Noah and his needs, i.e. “Hang on, Ezra, Mommy has to get Noah a drink of milk right now, I’ll be with you in a minute.” Noah probably heard the flipside of that sort of thing a dozen times a day, as I unconsciously prioritized the baby over him, so I tried to make sure I announced the times HE got first dibs on Mommy’s time.)
