reasoning with a 17 month old is a ridiculous notion. i get the idea behind this approach to parenting but in the end you're left with a defiant little bastard bundle of joy. i'm not about to break out the paddle but a loud stern voice seems to be working.
who the hell am i kidding? nothing works on these little shits darlings! she just keeps standing in the chair and pulling out the cds and messing with the tv and... when the hell does no start to work? someone help!
