well i spank and do time outs and take toys away i have a 3 yr old boy and a 2 yr old girl. some times none of it seems to work some times it does but the corner some what works the best just make sure u can see they or they wont stay there long lol i make my son stand for three mins after he stops screaming and crying and throwing his fit. its 3 min cuz he is three and 2 mins cuz she is two but by the time its all said and done they could be in the corner for like 20 mins depending on how long it takes them to calm down and be quiet for the 3 or 2 mins. spanking doesnt really faze my kids they dont care if i spank them.so i motly just do time out and take away toys.

I know when it came to spanking with my 2yr old boy that didn't faze him one little bit. He thought it was a joke. So, I started time out. Worked better than I thought. He can't stand it when no one is paying any attention to him.

I would say spanking's work but they need to understand why they are being punished and do not let thing's slide kid's need consistency.And that they are loved but make sure they know that you are just watching out for there best interest.

Time out/time away and privilege removal (including toy taking) are what works best for here and being consistent.
The consistency is key and the hardest part.

Although I'm not against spanking (I've done it and I grew up with it), timeout works best for my youngest. But if you aren't consistent, nothing will work. It is also an important thing to be very matter of fact about (don't seem angry or upset). Another thing I've learned is to first decide WHAT matters. Pick your battles and stick to your guns. For me, battles over clothing aren't worth it. My little girl wears a Dora shirt and rubber boots nearly every day. I don't back down, however if she is yelling at me because she is angry. Good luck to you!

Time outs work very well for us, but no toys are allowed during a time out or they are taken away for a day. We started these at age 2. Removing toys that are being abused or used as weapons is something we do, too. He doesn't see them for a few days.

consistency. whatever you pick, being consistent with it really is the key. anything you let slide, they will do again. and again. :) hold the line and they'll toe it. :)

Definetly naughty step or chair.Introduce them to it first explaining what it is and why they will be put there.Keep the same rule for all children.If child is misbehaving,using a strong tone give them a warning,if they continue to misbehave dont speak to them just put them on the chair walk away witout looking back.they are to be put on step for one minute for each year of the child.they are not to move off the chair until their time is done.When time is up they should be told why they were put their and made apolgise.Hope this works for you.
