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!

How often do you fret with your lil one in an hour?
