I heard it works best to use the word "no" in a quiet, stern voice and remove her if need be. If not no, try another negative, we don't do that, don't, stop that, stop, uh uh, etc.

My son is 18 months old an understands the word completely, but being the little monster he can be he does it anyways. I do redirection and timeout. I don't believe in spanking a child but that's a personal view. Timeout upsets them, a spanking? It doesn't hurt that long. Redirection is for the times you don't want to fight. ;) Haha. All kids are brats(I love kids, so don't take that the wrong way) it's not just yours, and it's not just a girl thing, my son does the same thing. Good luck, Christina!

Redirection! It's really the only thing that works with a child that age. Bring her to another toy, or another room, whatever. If she goes back to the thing she's not supposed to be doing, remove her again. It takes awhile but eventually she will learn.

In my highschool parenting class, which I really hate to reference because almost everything they teach you is a 'perfect world' thought, a.k meaning its a pretty picture but sometimes your a little too tired and drained to think about effective ways of communication, but it says at that early age their really still to young to understand completely what disipline and 'yes' and 'no' things are. I think just be patient and tell her "no" calmly, take it away from her or her away from it and be patient.

My daughter is almost 15 months, she understands the word no, but she doesnt like to listen and if you tell her no she'll do one of three things... 1 hit herself and say ow, 2 she'll yell AINH! and walk away, 3, she'll cry lol
