Lately the mornings go well. Then DD goes down for her nap around midday. She sleeps about 2 hours. Then she has lunch. Then the afternoon just goes down hill. She ignores me. She doesn't listen. She blatently does things she knows are wrong. Oh... & don't get me started on the tantrums.
I can't link it to any foods. She just had a nap so she shouldn't be tired. I've tried including her in helping... which she is enthusiastic about but then starts veering off course. I've tried alternating her toys so they will be "new" again. I've tried letting her watch appropriate videos or tv. I've tried keeping the tv & radio off so she doesn't get overstimulated. I've tried doing activities with her. I've tried letting her play on her own in a safe area. I've tried yelling. I've tried putting her back in her crib when she doesn't listen. Ugh!!!
I'm at the end of my rope. I want my sweet little angel back. It's as if I'm Charlie Brown's teacher... oh... & let's be clear... she completely hears me & understands me. This isn't a learning problem or disability. This is a toddler problem!
Is anyone else experiencing this? What did you do? Is there a magic solution???
