The How To Mom: how to fix your child's attitude

She was stubborn, and hated to be "controlled" which just made me want to try even harder to control her. It was power struggle city. Over ev.ry.thing. Getting her in the carseat, diaper changes, getting dressed, not acting like a lunatic at the store. It was non-stop. After finding Dr Laura Markham, my world changed.
