Re: I can't take the sassiness anymore!

I suggest picking up "Playful Parenting" from your local library.

It might transform your struggles and frustration into giggles and connection.

My LO is under two, so I can't say it worked for me at that stage, but I had the frustration of not being able to turn my back to my crawler for a second without piercing wales. This book helped me see he was distressed, and I turned it into a game to ease his fears. I made it a game of peek-a-boo, and soon turning my back to get a drink etc initiated laughter instead of tears. This book is geared more for older children with behavior problems caused by emotional issues, emphasizing empathy and connection to improve daily interactions with children. It resonated with me.
