Imagine a child who constantly asks you for something when you’ve already said no. This is what a strong-willed child is like – times 3.  Once they get an idea in their heads, they won’t let it go, because they tend to fixate on things.

You can try and negotiate or debate with them on why they don’t need that $50 Spiderman toy, but once they’re locked in on an idea, there’s no backing down. They may even have a tantrum, and you already know how bad those can be. Pick and choose your battles, but stick to your promises and ultimatums. Otherwise your SWC will know you’re not consistent and will try to run over you to get what they want.
