Arguing With Your Tot

How Often Do You Fight With Your Tot?

Do you ever find yourself playing a verbal tug–of–war with your child? You're not alone. A study released in the
March/April 2008 issue of Child Development reports:

Mothers and their toddlers argue 20-25 times per hour on average.

The study examined children between 30 and 36–months–old in two separate sessions where the kids faced a challenging environment. In an hour long period, some children only quarreled with their mamas four times while others duked it out 55 times!
