This mom shares her success story using the brain dead statement “I know” over and over again…..
My 3 year old didn’t want any of the two choices I gave him for breakfast, so I picked one for him. He was not happy and kept throwing a fit. I empathetically used “I know” about six or seven times before he finally took a deep breath, slumped his shoulders, and started eating quietly.
Going “brain dead” began to work faster and faster the rest of the week. It only took saying it 2 or 3 time for him to chill out and do what I said!
