I am curious does anyone have a particularly stubborn preschooler? Natalie has gotten to a phase where she's wants to do her own thing most of the time.
I will tell her to get dressed, which she can do, then she will ignore me and do her own thing, half the time I have to threaten her like "I am going to take your toys away, if you keep playing with them and not get dressed" to motivate her.
Other times she'll ask for something and I'll give a no and she'll respond with a "you never let me..." then she'll sneak off and get what she wants on her own or try to convince others to let her do what she's not allowed.
I hate that I've had to resort to negative reinforcement but nothing else seems to work, anyone have any suggestions?
