– saying no to some foods

– Running in the road plucking her hand off from me
In short, she became too naughty .. The only remedy is distracting her from the deeds I dislike .. Just say no to beating/scolding/yelling as it might have a negative impact. By now, you would have introduced her to many characters from crow & elephant to Mickey & Teddy! When she behaves naughty, try distracting her by short stories involving her favorite characters narrated in motherese language.. Try to build a story with every deed , so that she relates to that and enjoys the story & the deed as well..
Its high time to teach them good and bad touch. Please read my parenting article on bad touch.
