I don't know what happened to my sweet Gillian over the past week? She's turned into a biting maniac! She used to be afraid of Finley, she would never bite or hit and now suddenly she's attacking her every chance she gets.
She's biting, hitting, kicking, slapping and even pulling hair. Who is this kid?
So tonight I decided to take drastic measures. I put her in time out. I knew it was only a matter of time.......today was definitely the time.
I put a chair in the corner of her play room (that was where we were playing at the time) and put her in it. She laughed and got up about 30 times before she finally figured out I meant business and then her laughs turned into whines and she stayed there for about a minute and a half. Then I told her to say sorry (which she can't say yet but I figure she'll learn it eventually) and that was that.
Fifteen minutes later she smacked Finley and landed herself right back in. This time she got up once and then stayed for her minute.
Then of course because I didn't have enough to do all night Finley bit Gillian and she ended up in time out for the first time. She too got up about 30 times and was laughing and running from the chair but eventually realized she had no other choice and stayed there crying.
I'm hoping this is the start to good obedient children.
