I expressed my frustrations with timeouts. So far they don't work. Ryan giggles and thinks it is a game when I try to get him to sit on a chair for a minute when he's been disobedient. His Dr. suggested using the corner of the room for timeouts, and blocking him in sitting with my back to him. It doesn't even have to be a long time....1 minute at the most. But the point is to make it a non-fun and boring experience for Ryan. We'll try it and see what happens!
Ryan's Dr. said that we can switch him to lowfat milk once he turns 2. I'm still undecided on when I will make the switch, since he is on the smaller side and could probably use the extra calories for now.
We talked about Ryan's development, and other than his speech delays, he is doing really well. He was such a pleasant little boy at the appointment that he even waved goodbye to the Dr. at the end!
