Re: How do YOU deal with defiance? My 5.5 y/o...

I would give her 2 choices, and say "either you may walk to your room like a big girl,or I will help you." However,the general idea is that you want to make your "help" not very fun for them. Like,don't pick her up and cradle her as you carry her in her room. Take a FIRM hold on her shoulder,and lead her as resolutely as you can. She will quickly realize that it would be better to go on her own.
