I have one child who wears her heart on her sleeve, and it is a very tender heart. Leah is tough. I can NOT hurt her feelings even when I am trying to get my point across.
Is the sound of my voice, raised at a much louder and forceful pitch funny? Because Leah obviously finds it hilarious.
Luckily Hannah will get offended and responds to an extent. Offended is a bad word. If I scold her, she throws herself on the floor in a heap of tears. Dramatic.
Our main issue right now is the girls LOVE to climb in kitchen chairs and those are not very stable. I do not mind if they sit down in the chairs but they stand up and turn around and shake the back of the chair. We have had many incidents because of this. And now they have started to climb on the table! Not only this, they move objects so they can climb up onto the bar stools.
We are really working on this but they find me funny. I pop their hands and Hannah doesnt like this. Leah is not phased in the least. I am a big fan of time outs but I dont see that working just yet. Plus I dont have a place to put them where they would stay and then I would have another discipline issue where they would not listen to me and stay put.
Maybe they will grow out of the climbing phase. Not likely, but maybe
