whining in a one year old
I am at my wits end.
My daughter is 12 month old.
She is the epitamy of what a bipolar one year old would be. One minute she is perfectly happy and laughing the next minute she is SCREAMING. From there we transgress to whining. Not to mention she is clinging. She will not deal with any one but me, and if you know how this, you can imagine I am at the point of pulling my hair out. She whines so much!
I talk to her now when she whines. And this has been helping monumentally. I remain calm, because getting upset makes her upset.
But how can I brake the clingyness. I cannot leave her with any one. She makes herself pass out! SHe has been doing this for 4 months now. I took her to a Dr. They said, though it was more commonly seen in a toddler, it was a safe behavior of dominance. And let me tell you, it works.
How to I brake this?
