Little notes to myself:
Connecting enough? Good eye-contact means “yes.”
Model “don’t argue” by not arguing.
Immediate concrete consequence / ignore power-grabbing.
Simply hold for comfort — play enzyme.
Nastiness is hurtful and tiring; allow for self-care.
Are there too many options in books, toys, clothes?
Be completely ready before saying “It’s time to…”
Consider a month of no videos.
Clean up everything by dinner time.
Have five-minute tidies a few times during the day.
Be more willing to help and less irritated by needs.
“That’s a shame” in response to nasty threats and other ugly speech.
