Biding my time...

One of the principles of Love and Logic is that you allow your children to make many of their choices so that when you do have a non-negotiable issue, you make it happen.

I remember the fighting over medicines that has since become a non-issue. The Boy is a pro. The nephrologist said it would happen, as long as we kept at it with him. We also had help from the incomparable Nurse Pam.

So now, I have to put the coat on him. And force the issue. Fortunately, I found a snap on the top that he can't get to ;). When he knows he is beat, he gets over it and moves on. Unfortunately, he is stubborn and rarely admits defeat. Not that it is a matter of besting the two-year-old. It's more of a cooperative effort. Kinda.

Leaving to go collect kisses!

It's a little like kicking a puppy, isn't it? I mean, sure, we can beat him... but nobody's happy about it. There are still days when we have to tip him over and pour the medicine down his throat.
