Just back from a weekend visit with DD SIL DGD (5) and DGS (1). Three hour journey away. Last visit was March. FT in between so the DGC know us very well.
DGD is a handful to say the least. Defiant, wilful and yet. . . lovely, bright little girl.
DD and SIL are at their wit's end with her. Have said what a good job they're doing. Suggested they try distraction and cajoling as they are driven to a lot of shouting. Suggested they keep their powder dry and save shouting for really serious stuff-like running into road etc.
DD and SIL both have demanding jobs so a live out experienced Nanny is there and DGD gives her the runaround too so there is a reward chart being used. Ultimate deterrent is no iPad time although she only uses it at weekend in any event. Just feel so helpless!
