I'm having a heck of a time with my 24 month old. Hitting, kicking. Throwing, etc... Mostly age appropriate but frustrating none the less. I started using first mommy ..... Then Sofia...... So today at lunch it was first mommy helps Sofia to the sink, then Sofia washes her hands. First mommy cuts the chicken then Sofia eats with the fork.
As annoying as it can get, it does help. Good luck.... I'm right there with you!
