I'm finding myself very frustrated with the repetitive re-directions, request etc- eg: climbs on chair to get on table when I'm preparing a meal or when I'm not in the room. After being taken off the table and said- the table is for eating not climbing on- and sent off to play. He 360's and is right back climbing on the chair.
or the other frustrating event- while doing laundry he loves the chimes of the buttons on the machines. He's constantly turning them on and off- I'm concerned about longevity of machines if this is done repetitively. I say, not for Liam, no touching machines. I try to redirect by having him help me load the washer or get him engaged with a toy... not 5 seconds later he's back at the buttons or screaming if I've blocked it off.
I'm an AP convert after being much more mainstream with ds#1- and am finding myself reverting to undesirable methods and reactions.
Your input is welcome. Thanks in advance.
