Ksysia 25 | 430 13 Oct 2010 #1That nice German-English couple I know have a 2.5 year old daughter. She's cute- blond and blue Barbie doll.I just want to say this - not that I have my own kids already, but 2.5 seems a little early for a contest of wills. Children are animals and nothing more. She can't bang the spoon on the table, etc. She's more and more restless and looks very tired. Probably she cries instead of sleeping.Not sure if that's normal in Germany.
