I worry that my daughter Alice, has a split personality. At school she cleans up her toys and puts on her shoes. At home, she insists whenever I ask her to pick up anything, and lately has started demanding that I spoon-feed her dinner. Clearly, her teacher knows something I don't.
But then, what parent hasn't occasionally wondered..
Why is my child better for everyone else than for me?
I guest the simple answer is...
Your child tests her limits with you because she trusts you will love her no matter what. But that doesn't mean you can't borrow a few strategies from the preschool teachers' playbook to get the best from your child.
