We started a little behavior bootcamp around here to curb some of the typical toddler tantrums. Our new rule is that if you are crying for effect, you have to go to your room. Ella has responded to this new rule wonderfully, well...maybe too much so...she is often right next to me while I am trying to calm Drew, saying "Drew cry. Go to room!" Also, today at the puppet show a little girl fell and Ella looks at me points her one finger in the air and says "Girl, go to room! Cry!" Later while getting a bagel she heard a baby crying and again, "Mom, baby cry. Go to room!"
