Re: How to teach a toddler...

I think it's definitely an age thing. DD#1 just turned 3 and she has been going at this for a couple months. She's not quite bold enough to tell me "No" outright, but she'll say "yes" and act out the no. (if that makes sense). DD#2 is 14 months younger and she's fighting back when Emma takes something from her so occasionally I just let them settle it between them (no matter how much screaming/fussing is involved) and if it gets to be too much then the toy is taken away from them both. Other times, I will help them try to use their words to solve the problem. At the end of every conflict they have to say they're sorry and they forgive, then give a hug.
