How do you handle stubborn kids?
Maybe my dad is right. Maybe I am THAT stubborn. Maybe this is karma biting me in the arse for making fun of his letter. *whistles* Oh well, at least I didn’t turn into stone kan?
Ekiel’s stubbornness is TOO much to handle lately. He’s not badly behaved. It’s just that what Ekiel wants, Ekiel MUST get like not brushing his teeth in the morning because “he cannot do it”. The past few mornings, the whole neighborhood can hear our ritual morning yelling.
Me: IF YOU DON’T BRUSH YOUR TEETH YOU CANNOT GO TO SCHOOL!!!
Ekiel: I cannot do it!!! MOMMY!!! LISTEN TO ME!!!
Me: BAH NO NEED GO SCHOOL LARR. GO BACK TO SLEEP LARR YOU!!!
Ekiel: MOMMY!!! *CRY CRY CRY*
This goes on for about 15 to 20 minutes.
What did I do? I used the towel to clean his teeth and pray no one from his class will pass out from his stinky breathe.
cute juga si ekiel tu - lol... towel to brush & clean his teeth/mouth - hehe too cute...
bah.. if teda gigi.. sia kasi ketawa oh... ikat ja bah.. then brush his teeth.. ko ni kan..
kasian dia punya future bini (ahem!!)..
I think boys are like that...same with my son, Darren...when he was small, he seldom brush his teeth to...nah, sekarang ni, banyak buruk gigi dia... mau tampal la...but to use towel to brush it, style baru ni la kan...hehehe
this lap gigi with towel is from my mom. hahahaha.
ko ingat senang mau kasih ikat? he's a strong boy... the other day he tertumbuk me with the massager thingy, lebam bah my jaw.
itu larr... gigi buruk lain hal, kalu sakit gigi...
i told him, he will be thankful for me when he still have his teeth when he turns 80!
maybe u should get him colorful toothbrush w flavor toothpaste.. or.... bribe him!! hahaha
tried all three still no luck.
m thinking to try the electric toothbrush... heheheh... tambah malas larr may anak this.
You know, I am also contemplating on the electric toothbrush, my anak oso stubborn when it comes to brushing gigi.I tried the towel technique too, but when my finger entered her mouth, I suffered the wrath of her bites. Pain much.
susah oh kan.
berus gigi pun boleh jadi satu hal.
nasib my son tdk gigit my jari if not itu lagi kami gaduh.
i think its time to bring my son to the dentist. but i imagine it will be chaotic.
this is frm teacher pov lah ya.
if ekiel doesnt 'makan' with the tough discipline thingy (the shouting and all)...try the soft way. how? well, thats the hard thing to come up with lah...
but maybe, just maybe..when you brush your teeth etc in the morning, let him see what u doing. let him see your morning rituals of making yourself clean and tidy before going out frm the house. just let him see and emphasize from time to time how that's what you really love to do....maybe, he'll start think, 'oh mummy likes to do this. i should too'...
