Difficult Child or Stubborn Mother?

My daughter is...willful. I started saying this when she was about 1yr old and now she is three. She hears me, computes the message, ignores and deliberately defies. I used to relish in the drama of that being all my fault somehow but I surrender to the fact that she is just a born leader and a Gemini too. Good Lord help me. Here's what i've found and it really is helping.

"How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk" by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazllish

I'm just sayin'.

I need that book. I'm always saying my son is showing his leadership skills. He's been that way since the day he was born.

Why couldn't I have birthed a follower instead???

I may need that book!
