  • Those of you with more than one child, how do you deal with things when your youngest child annoys the older by copying them?

  • Alyssa does that occasionally to Savannah and it drives her crazy. I tell Savannah to ignore her and watch how fast Alyssa will stop, that usually works.

    I have also told Savannah to say silly things like "Im acting silly" or "My feet are stinky" and when Alyssa copies her and says those things they both start laughing so hard!

  • I copy back- they now know that whatever they do, I can do much louder and longer than they can.

  • This is THE thing of the moment at our house and it's driving ME insane along with the one being copied.

    In fact, they are so good at it, I can't tell who is being the pest.
     


    I'm trying to teach them to ignore one another, but it's not working too well.
