Ok ladies, I need some help!!! I'll take ANY advice here! My youngest daughter.... she's
19 months old, and she's... I am ashamed to say it.... a BITER!! She is also a scratcher, a hiter, a hair puller, a pincher.... AHHHHHHH!!! None of my other kids were ever like this! None of them did ANY of these things!! Jillian, my sweet angel baby, has now turned into a......
Brian thinks it's because she sees the other kids playing and wrestling around and she is doing it too. The other kids dont hurt each other like that, but maybe Jillian just doesn't know the difference. She doesn't hurt them when she is mad, she hurts them when she is playing around. She thinks it's funny too. She will scratch Brielle in the face and laugh, even when Brielle is crying and BLEEDING, she still laughs! I ask her, "Did you hurt Brielle?" She looks at me smiling, "No."
So, I have started 'The Naughty Chair"
When Jillian hurts someone, she has to sit in the chair. I don't use the chair for any other bad behaivior except for when she hurts someone. If she is chasing after one of them looking like she is going to hurt them I warn her about the chair. She usually stops after the warning. When I put her in the chair, I tell her why she is in the chair, and why what she did was wrong and that she can get out if she says she is sorry. She hates saying that she's sorry, so she usually sits there for about 2 minutes because that's how long it takes her to apologize. She sometimes cries when she's in the chair, sometimes laughs.
I am really at a loss. My other kids are so well behaved, well mannered.... and then there's Jillian. I know I spoil her. I spoil her with love, I do. She is my last baby and I know this and I don't like that I will never have any other babies, so I spoil her. She's still nursing, still co-sleeping.... but these are the only things that she gets more than the other kids. I really do treat them the same so I don't know how she could have turned into this monster! I want to cry! She used to be such a sweet angel! Layed back, goes with the flow, cuddle bug angel!
Please, if you have gone through this, or have any advice I will gladly take it!!
