I am against physical punishment and spanking, I know this backfires big time. I was previously a big fan of positive reinforcment and time-outs however doing a bit of reading there are alot of people against timeouts and the naughty corner aswell!
One lady says 'how would an adult like it if they were confined ot a naughty chair for making a mistake' but i think misbehaving isnt always a mistake, especially from a toddler who knows the limits and wants to test them....
So if people are against spanking & timeouts what methods do they use?
and what methods do you use for your 2 year old - Are they too young for timeouts?
I was putting into place a naughty chair, first he gets a warning and then i count to 3, then I tell him why he is going onto the chair and set the egg timer, when he is off I explain why he was there again & get him to fix whatever it was he done wrong.
Sounds good but hasnt really been working.
My boy at the moment is throwing things violently, toys and books, across the room into walls and at people, and just plainly not listening to me and acting out at everything he has been told not to do . He has just turned really naughty lately and I need new ideas or better ideas on how to correct this.
I would love to hear what your 2 year old is doing and how you go about fixing the behaviour, and if it has been successful on numerous occasions.
