Yeah - I agree with the others - you need to be on the same page - and the peanut gallery comments make it worse - he needs to make Kendall understand that she will not get away with it with him either. BTW, that is normal 2-4 age behavior - Kaitlyn has started it too. Hang in there!

Don't feel bad. Toddlers will make you crazy. I am right there with you. Its hard not to feel completely helpless because there is only so much you can do to get them to listen without spanking. I try to sort of have a list of options in my head to go through before I threaten that, but I have a 3 mth old as well so I don't always have time/patience. Here is what I try to do: Turn it into a game, Lose a toy, Physically make her do whatever it is, Time Out, Spanking.
