I dont know where to start. So Quinlan is a totally different child with me verses DF, with DF she has her listening ears on always. With me she pushes my limits I know t his is normal 19 month old behavior but I dont know how to address it. I even discipline the same way he does and correct her the same way. She just reacts to him, Me she literally has a smile on her face and this smirk. I dont think the time out chair is effective she goes in it no problem even if she is crying about it sits there she sees me she smiles and smirks(when her time out is over and Im going to get her), She also knows why she is in time out. I tell her before hand because she gets her warning, and then when shes all done I say do you know why mommy put you in time out, she will say I hit, or I pinch. I say thats right and that hurts Mommy and makes me sad. What do we do in this house and she will say kisses and hugs and then Im sorry.
Then the last week and a half she will not go to bed in her crib without screaming, We have had the bed down for over a year now, I could put her in there wide awake and she was fine. Now I put her in there she starts with the lip and then she says to me hand hand and wants me to hold her hand til she falls asleep. Last night I let her CIO, it was about 10 mins and she was out at 2:30 she woke up screaming, I let her CIO for about 5 ,mins went in consoled her and left she instanlty was screaming and she was shaking and saying hand hand so I brought her in bed with me
Now I work 4, 10 hour days. I have Tues, Sat/Sun with Quinlan. Most mornings we have no time but am snuggles and off s he goes. When she gets home we have about 1.5-2hrs then she goes to bed.
I feel perhaps part of the issue with her behavior is the difference of discipling at our house verses my moms. I have expressed my concerns but I feel they dont follow through effectively
Yesterday at art she was screaming thought it was hysterical I said no thank you please use your indoor voice your hurting your friends ears, and she looked at me and says No No and swatted at me
I just need some advice on the sleep and behavior. LOL I know I can always count on you ladies
