I am not sure when Antonio started to be so kulit...touching the dvd player, the plug, the electrical outlet, electric fan, throwing the cellphone, the utensils, etc etc etc...When we say no, he will still do it...We were thinking that he is becoming a spoiled brat kaya he does not listen to us...
Earlier, I read this at babyzone.com...I was sooooo relieved. Di naman pala matigas ulo ni Antonio! =)
Once your child realizes that you and he can be of different minds, he goes out of his way to see just where you are in conflict. For example, he realizes that you disapprove of him touching the controls on the DVD player, about which he's highly curious. It fascinates him that you and he can have a conflict over his interest in this flashy device that's so clearly begging to be poked.
However, my relief was short lived, kasi
if you don't want him to touch the DVD player or your PDA, you'd better put them out of his reach until this period of fascination about such conflicts between the two of you passes. (When's that? Depending on the child, about age three. This phenomenon provides a scientific explanation for this period of development's popular nickname: the "terrible twos.")
Haha! So mahaba habang pasensya pa ang kailangan! =)
