We’ve had a tricky week with Emmie this week. Couple that with Joe emitting an incessant, low grizzle (a bit like the Bristol Hum) because he has the last of his teeth coming in, and you can imagine what my empties box looks like. It’s been a little bit rough and an awful lot tough to say the least.
So I spent any spare moment I had reading and reacquainting myself with some expert advice. How to react, what to say and when to walk away. All of this is toddler-centric but the gentle techniques and psychology still apply. I think!
I picked 10 of my favourite articles that I found, for you to take a look at too.
