I received an email from a local Momee Friend in need of Momee advice:
My daughter is 2 years old and my husband and I feel we constantly say the word “no”. We feel like our daughter looks at us like we have ten heads when we say no, she then laughs (as if it is a game ) and continues to do what we said no to. My daughter gets into everything and that is expected at her age and my mother tells me, “oh it’s those terrible twos” and she will grow out of it. But, my husband and I want to know at what age do kids start to understand the word “no” and should we be giving our daughter time outs or doing something else to signify that what she is doing is not allowed.
Can any of you other Momees relate to this situation?
Please reply with any advice you may have…
