Quoting Lisa:

Welcome to the club!
My eldest always listens to me. I worked at a school for special needs for a while when she was little and used a lot of their techniques and still use some of them wit her and have no bother.
My two year old however just cannot hear my voice! I have roared so many times today i am horse. So I'm gonna start back to basics tomorrow.
1. Get ther attention by using the phrase - are you doing good listen? (sounds mad but it worked before)
2. Look into her eyes when I'm talking to her to maintain the attention.
3. Get her to repeat or demonstrate that the understands what I have said.
4. Praise her, love her, reward her whne she gets it right.

Wish me luck!
