My oldest daughter loves to talk. She's been speaking in sentences since she was 2--she's almost 3. I love it most days. But what the heck am I supposed to do when she starts divulging things to people that I don't really want her to. For example she tells everyone, including strangers and my family a version of:
"i can't tie my sissy up with a jump rope my daddy says no. and i can't hit her. my daddy yelled at me. i'm not allowed to have my pink princess jumprope. I have to be nice to my sister girl or daddy yell at me."
it's true, she did break the curtains over a month ago, and she did get a time out. she did dump about a gallon of water out of the tub for the zillionth time, and i did smack her butt one time and put her directly to bed. it's also true that my very kind and gentle hubs yelled at her not to tie up her sister. it's all true. but how do we get her to keep it to herself?????
