Ok, we have questions. Lately, Gus has been clearly testing the concept of no. For example, he’ll head for the garbage can, hear the no and speed up in order to open and grab something out before I can get there. I tell him no, calmly, firmly, looking him in the eyes. He reaches up again, watching for a reaction. I repeat. And usually he eventually moves on. But more and more often, he throws a tantrum. I usually distract him and move to another topic or location -but I’m wondering a) is this normal? I mean, we’ve heard of the terrible twos but this is 13 months! and b) are there any other tricks or things we should be doing? Our parenting books are so general and don’t have any solid advice.
