This is another way to stop the repetition, repetition, tantrum sequence.
Problem: You have the same problem you had last week. Your child is talking your ear off, and it’s all “I want this, I need that, mommy, mommy, mommy, mama, maaaammmmmma, do this now, do that now, you get it, get it for me.” When did they get so bossy anyway? And who put the three year olds in charge? And you know that if you make a wrong step here, it’s meltdown city. Toddlers have no priorities. They will die on any hill. Taking a DVD down from the shelf is as important as going to the beach. There is no reasoning with this. So, how can you subvert the entire process and save everyone a headache?
