Just pick a method of discipline that you are comfortable with and ALWAYS follow through! But at the same time pick your battles, use your discipline for when there doing something bad not just cheeky. I find because my 3yo girl is quite sensitive it helps her if I explaine the situation to her afterwards because they understand more than u think. Good luck

I think you mentioned two very important points. Without follow through nothing will work, no matter what methods of discipline you choose. And picking your battles is huge. If you over-discipline than the toddler will stop taking you seriously. In addition kids need positive reinforcement when they do listen the first time. I try to always tell me son how happy, poud, ect it makes me when he listens so nicely.

My daughter will be 3 in march, and she is the queen of not listening. Alot of times to get her attention when she's not listening I will start counting to 3. If that doesnt work then I will take away whatever it is that she's doing, turn off the tv, take away the toy, put her in time out, etc. That usually gets her attention and gets her to listen to me.

I like to give mine choices. As in do what I asked or go to time out, maybe pick up your toys or mommy will do it & then I'll keep them and then follow through. This only works if they care though. These work far better on my daughter than my son.

i need a bit of help in this area as well. My son is 4.5 yrs, and some days are ok, but some days i ask him to stop doing something, he looks at me, and does it anyway. Counting doesn't work, and timeouts don't either. I don't want to be one of those parents that are always yelling at their kid. I am getting frusterated and would love some advice.

My doughter is 4 and she goes to pre-k. Every days she comes back with a short note from the teacher that says she hurt someone or she did something wrong. I have told her the way it should be at school and at home, but it just seems she doesn't care and keeps the bad behavior. I have put away her faviorite toys, I have given her time-out, and she changes her attitude for better only for a cuple of days. What can I do? We have a hard time at home because she doesn't listen to us either, we have to yell at her before she obeys, we are getting tired of this situation.

Yeah I use the one warning then time out method. I've used it since my little boy was around 1 but I think a bit before. Just tell him what to do or not to do then if he disobeys sit him down tell him what he did wrong leave for 1 min. Come back and repeat why he had the time out get a sorry hug and kiss. The only trouble is wheni start getting relaxed with my rules he starts not listening when it'll him to do something. He's 2 1/2 now and trying to figure out what e can and can't get away with. He also tells me what he did wrong since he is verbal enough to use sentences. I think that helps him remember what he was punished for.
