: Ok i have a question, maybe its the way kids act i don't know. OK my one yr old and two year old are alful, meaning that they are always fighting with one anougher pulling hair, bitting, hitting you name they do it. When my son what's something he demans it and he will scream so lound the ppl next door could here it, they both do it.And potty training my son don't like to go in the potty anymore he goes on the floor he will go now and then in the potty, and the bottle thing i'm trying to take it away but he has a fit cause his little sis can have one and not him i have tryed to tell him why she can have it but its like he tune's me out, and he will scream and scream so i end up giveing him it. I know thats wrong, but why do they do this to me.

Hey Summer. I was watching Dr. Phil a few weeks back and he had a specila on parents and small chldren. His advice was to stand your ground and be consistant! These little guys are way smart! They figure out quick that they can get stuff by screaming until you give in! (I'm working on other issues with my 4yr old who knows this trick well) Good Luck!!
