She then proceeded to point out to Lucia the "no-no" behavior and reinforced the "yes-yes" one. All she really got was a blank stare, but so far, no more art explosions on the wall, so maybe, just maybe this worked.
I've always loved No No Yes Yes by Leslie Patricelli. She has a wonderful series of board books for toddlers.
Have your kids ever used your walls for their own artistic purposes?
