I have been reading a copy of The New Strong-Willed Child, by Dr. James Dobson, which I rented from the public library recently. It has some very insightful things in it—even if your child isn't technically "strong-willed"—and I have been encouraged. The thing I find ironic is, I have never checked out a book from the library until now that has so many stains or remnants of food in it! (I've found at least 3-4 spots.) Apparently these strong-willed children are getting their grimy little hands on the book!!
Oh, excuse me.... I need to go take care of some business with my 4-year-old who is putting up a stink in his room because he doesn't want to take his nap! Hmmm... isn't the timing ironic?
