With Jo Frost ringing in my head...

I think things are on the improve.  I feel my head clearing, my attitude adjust.  I'm making it out of the fog I think.

As much as the public, parents and 'experts' give Jo Frost (the Supernanny) a hard time (well let's face it her 'unasseptable' is a little on the funny side, makes me giggle!) her methods do work. Show love, be consistent, be firm.  Naughty corner, age-for-minutes time-outs and explaining in terms that kids' understand the expectations...of them and you.

Another parenting guru I seek as a reference is Dr Tanya Byron.  She is a british child psychologist you may have seen her on the House of Tiny Tearaways (oh how I loved that show and wish they would bring it back! It's like Big Brother for parents and wayward toddlers) I have her book:  Your Child Year by Year.  It looks at development/health and behaviour year-by-year from ages 3-14 (so not your typical baby book) would recommend it to anyone!
