Can a 2 year old to make good decisions?

Posted in Toddlers on 8th November 2012

Can you come to a 2-year good decisions?
What do you think of this current trend in education think? Is it effective? I was waiting outside a restaurant when I saw a toddler push an older child back in a flowerbed. The victim screamed, was hurt but not really. Mommy quietly and gently says the pushy kid, “Well Michael, we make a good choice?” He looked at his mother with the most confused look in his eyes. Poor child had to think: “Worked for me good mom What is your problem.” I wanted to laugh out loud when this happened, but did not dare let a stranger know that I thought the whole situation was funny. Must admit I was rooting for the little guy. He was just a normal kid dealing with a sibling. What confused me was the parent reaction. Times have changed a lot since I was raising my own children Best Answer (s):.

2 y.o. Children make impulsive, irresponsible decisions sometimes. Michael does not really matter that he made a bad choice. If that was my child, it would have a consequence. I am so fed up with spoiled, indulged children.

When I had my 2 year old to make their own decisions, they would make eating Hershey bars for breakfast and pouring motor oil on a rain puddle rainbow. No, it’s not a good idea and a bad idea to allow a child to believe that he has the power … they are still tantrums at this age, as it is … Terrible Two’s. A child expert said two-year-olds are temporarily insane, and that about sums it up.

Loving it, I always say the mother is in my children, “Who’s the mom?” They look at me as if my few remaining Marbles have lost, but they trust their children to me … And yes, they can be a good choice … make between chocolate cake and jelly beans!

you think it makes it look like a great mother. I saw it all while working with the public, so many parents Jahren.Als me in this situation I would not say a word, but she quickly went to the car and drove home. My children learned quickly that it’s easy to not pay to trade in places where people need to behave around. They would not all that I have said, listen. Other people are not amused by misconduct children OR “perfect” parents. You just want to enjoy themselves and have a decent quiet meal away from home.

response from Bears Mom
I think it’s crazy! Children need boundaries and as parents it is our responsibility to set these limits. Seems like the trend today to let the child do what he or she!

biennial Obviously, you can not want to trust is to take to make good decisions. They are impulsive. However, as 2 years old developed language, it is time to start for teaching about choice. Do you want the red or the green? I think this mother comments are more suitable for a child at least vier.In this case I would have given love and attention to the “victims”. I would have gone after the misconduct directly. Michael, I do not like it when you hit your brother. I’d better keep on you while we drive (or whatever) to go. Take his hand and then ignore ihn.Ich would not make too much of the incident you saw. Who knows what a day Mom? Who knows what’s going on in their lives? Are you a parent? I am (with grown-up sons, thank God above). I remember two boys 22 months apart. It has helped me to understand why guppies eat their young. I have not always correct everything. I bet you do not either. My sons grew up to be caring, responsible people. I bet you did to your children.

reply by e-ma
Yes, with parental guidance limiting their opportunities to 2 or 3 Dinge.Nicht vaguely something like this mother bot.Ich prefer simplicity as “you can to eat their lunch, or you can sit on the couch and read one of your books, ready to eat the rest of us. ” Deviation from these decisions represented a memory of the last * choice * unpleasant.

I think that the biggest decision can a 2-year “Do I have to eat these foods do not throw it on the floor?” This mother sounds like one of those trendy, the indoctrinated with the idea that we never had a negative word like was “naked.” Before they know it when they begin to teach some real discipline, it is a tyrant of a teenager to have their hands, and he is to rule the household.

response from Ritaah
No, you must guide 2 years, and if that leadership comes from an immature adult, it is as bad as no instructions at all. When children do something wrong, they do need to know that it’s wrong. If you hurt someone, they must know that it hurt. If they break something, they need to know during a tantrum that our actions bring consequences, such as “you have to play now a less toy” and should not replace the mother. If they deliberately to throw something on the floor, they should pick it up they werden.Bis consequences they will continue brats and big brats are pretty awful to have in your house.

What can I do to nullify some legal decisions of my mother if necessary?

What can I do to nullify some legal decisions of my mother if necessary?
I suspect that she is mentally ill, because in some critical situations her behavior becomes very harmfull.

For instance my father had a surgical operation and the doctor prescribed him some antibiotics to take for several days. My mother “decided” that the period for taking the pills was too long, so she emotionally blackmailed my father not to take them all, actually he cut the pills in the half of the period. After that he had some complications, but luckilly all went well, thanks to the doctor. There are other examples like this as they became older (she is 64, he is 70).

She is a stay-at-home, she is not even driving (never had a licence!), she had never tried to work something for money, she has never participated in the family income.

Answer by arejokerswild
You could ask your father to discuss all of his medical decisions with you. You could ask him to give you a medical power of attorney. You could and should talk to his doctor and let him know your mother is not taking proper care of your father and won’t let him take his medicine.

She might not be mentally ill, she might just want him to die.

Answer by spider092361
As judgmental as you may be against your mom I say give the old gal a break. It seems like you’d like to put her away somewhere, but time will take care of that, chill out, we are all a little strange. Imagine yourself at her age, and what things will be said about your little quirks. Give your old mom a break, and let them(your mom and dad)plot their own course. Just remember you will probably miss them dearly when they are called to the big sleep. So chill out on the old lady, and enjoy the time you have left with them.

Answer by Mike
I am sorry to hear about your mother.

It is possible that she may have had good reasons to do what she did, however what she did is quite dangerous. It is fortunate that your father recovered.

You need to talk to an attorney who specializes in elder law.

Also, get your father’s written permission to talk to his doctor.

Have your father’s doctor talk to the attorney.

If the attorney and the doctor know what they are doing, they will be able to help you resolve the issue.

Do not try to resolve this issue without the help of the doctor and the attorney.

Answer by conranger1
The decision of your mothers condition is not yours to make as you have no medical training.

You have no power over any legal decisions she makes with her solicitor.

Sounds like you are in a hurry to get her commited so you can try obtain her possessions and property.

Answer by 48Special
Maybe if you got the Doctor to talk to your Mother and he can tell her how important the medication is for your father to take. Then go from there if she insists that he cut down the intake of prescribed medicine then tell your Doctor that you feel your Mother is being negligent about your Father’s health care. The Doctor should be able to lead you in the right direction in how to handle this.
