My 20 month old is very defiant. I tell her not to do something and she ignores anything I say. If I take something away from her, she gets violent and starts hitting me or throwing things on the floor. She just doesn't want to listen to anything. She does the opposite of what I tell her. It's so frustrating!! I've tried praising her when she does listen and rewarding her during those rare occasions, but she doesn't care. What ideas can anyone give me that may help the situation???
