My son has been demonstrating very strong points of view for a while now but with his 2nd birthday behind us suddenly he seems to assert his positions very firmly.
We had to equip him with rain-gear last evening when we went out for a stroll because he refused to be carried and insisted he wants to get wet!
The story doesn't end there; since now we were ready for the rain we were happy n filled with glee while getting wet and in the process our jammies got wet with the rain water that seeped in through the gum boots. Finally when it was time to remove the raincoat out sleeves of the night suit were wet too! So as distressed set of parents we walked back to the raincoat shop and this time around picked up a dry set of night clothes!!!!
With his skills growing at such rapid pace I got excited and now have re-arranged my baby's shelves so that I can help him develop his fine motor skills as well as help him with his organisational behaviour. Have been advised by a lot of books as well as his school on these tricks. Hope they work!
