My 2.5 year old daughter doesn't ever seem to learn from consequences. She doesn't care if she gets in trouble for doing something she shouldn't, she ALWAYS does it again. She will jump on the couch, fall and hit her head and hours later do it again. She has been potty trained for 9 months. She will back to pooping in her pants (no diarrhea) and laugh about it. We have ignored it, time outs, spanked, made her clean it up herself, taken showers (even a cold one) stand in the corner, toys taken away... NOTHING IS WORKING. I am extremely frustrated with her, and we are not enjoying eachother at all. She doesn't learn from natural consequences or consequences we give her. She only obeys after I am completely angry with her (her brothers obey and learn the first time). I am at a complete loss, and extremely frustrated and angry with her. We have an appt with a counselor for toddlers to get help, but its a month out. Any advice or tips about kids who just dont seem to learn and have impulse control issues??
