The Strong-Willed Child
Lately Brian and I have been having more difficulty with Hannah. I know I've been warned that 3 is worse than 2!?! It's been over a year now that Hannah has not wanted to eat her meals. Of course she'll eat "junk" (candy, cookies etc....) without a problem! So yesterday at dinner, it was another fight to get her to eat. She chose not to eat, so Brian took all of the toys out of her room for the second time in a week. Today we were at the store and she noticed a Dora step stool. She asked me to buy it for her and I said no because she didn't need anymore toys and the ones she had, she couldn't play with now anyway. Right before going to this store, I went to a bookstore to buy James Dobson's book 'The Strong-Willed Child'. On our way home, she wanted to "read" this book. She also told me that when Noah has his birthday, maybe we can give him the Dora stool. I asked her, "What if Noah doesn't like Dora?". She answered back, "He likes Dora."
