Like any typical toddler, my little one’s current favorite word is No.
Me: “Do you want milk?”
Me: “Do you want to sleep?”
Me: “Do you…”
I have been trying out a little hypothesis of mine, where instead of asking her if she wants something, I offer her a choice between two viable options. For example,
Me: “Do you want milk OR crackers?”
A: (thinking) “crackers!”
I’ve been trying out this little experiment all day, and so far it seems to be working. However, toddlers are smart and evolve very quickly 😉 We will see how long this lasts!
