Teaching My Toddler (and myself) to Own Her Boundaries

Mama's Organized Chaos: A Babywise Blog
Teaching My Toddler (and myself) to Own Her Boundaries

I don’t like that.
Please don’t touch me.
Please don’t take things from me.
I wasn’t done with that.
You can have a turn when I’m done.

I’d prefer more space, please.
Excuse me, I was waiting in line. Please wait your turn.
That’s not polite.
That hurt.
The list goes on and I add more to it all the time. 
What is this list? Well essentially it’s the list of phrases I’m adding to my daughter’s ok to say list. She’s 2.5 years old now, and I want her to know she can stand up for herself. I want her to know she can do it in firm but polite ways. 
What else is does this list represent? It’s a list of all of the things I never say for myself. I am SO aware of it now that I’m a mom.

Hey guys! I'm Katrina (aka Mama)! I love country music, snuggling on the couch with our dog, and playing with our daughter. I am a fibro warrior, a former chemistry teacher, I love watching college football (go aggies!), and I love being a SAHM. Connect with me on Facebook for more adventures!
