My husband is much more patient with her than I but it seems like the more calm & logical you are with her, the more aggravated & obstintate she becomes (it took him nearly 20 minutes to get her in the car this morning). I tend to be more firm & she calms down quicker. We really, really want to be good role models for our children but I cannot seem to figure out how to deal with her except talking firmly & seriously. My husband thinks I need to be more logical & sweet with her but I just don't think it works.
I suppose I don't see firmness as stepping outside the boundaries of "positive discipline" but perhaps I'm wrong. Does anyone else have a screamer? How do you deal?
