I´m going to see if I can find that book! The problem is that I live in Guatemala, so it´s tough to find stuff like that sometimes.
I´ve seen some nanny shows in Spanish and the techniques look good, but trying to make my son sit in one place is basically an exercise in futility. He just gets madder. Usually what I do is put him in his room for a couple of minutes, then I go in and say, "Are you calm enough to come out?" He says yes and stops crying, but ten minutes later he is flipping out again.
We do try to talk to him, though he is in no mood to listen when he´s having a tantrum! I say something like, "I know you´re frustrated because your truck is broken, but that doesn´t mean you can hit your brother." Not sure if it helps.
Thanks for the advice, keep it coming!
