I am having trouble with my 2 year old son NOT listening!!! I have tried a few different things along the lines of discipline and all he does is laugh at me!! I am up for any advice on what to do. My daughter was nothing like this!

Thank you for the advice!!
I will admit that I have not been very consistent with him and I am going to start!! I have tried the time outs but like I said not consistent with it! Definitely going to give it a try and the no talking thing when you put him back in the corner is a good idea!! Do I start the time over if he gets up before its time?

Annmarierandall-I appreciate what you said but all those warnings are not going to get the job done. If you intend to put the child in time out; do it then and there in the time out place. You tell them they have x number of minutes (1 minute for year of the kids age=2 years old=2 minutes). You let them sit there. If they get up you put them back with not words and start the time again. You may do this several times before it sinks in but it will. Once the child has taken the time out, then you tell a 2 year old why he or she was in time out because most kids this age only use two word sentences. Then you tell them its not nice and let it go. Using a lot of big words is not going to keep their attention....quote: "u need to stop this behavior it is not nice" is too much for a child. As they grow older then you can pursue other things to discipline them with such as priviledges being taken, loosing out on tv, game consoles, and computer time when they are a lot older than this.

i know how u feel Hun i have a 4 year old and he did the same thing the trick is to remain cram and try not to lash out try to set a time out chair in one spot but give the child three warnings first before u place the child on the chair (if u haven't done this yet) u can put him in any room it can be anywhere as long as u can see them i done this trick and every time my son is naughty i just simply tell him in a cram but farm voice and look them in the eye being on their level and say "do u want to sit in the naughty chair?" if he laughs at u repeat it 3 times if he continues then place him on the chair and tell him "u have to sit on the naughty chair for 2 mints" and walk a way ( i know that might be hard but he needs to understand your hes mom and u mean it the child stays on the chair for 2 mints i say that because he is only 2 for each child has their own time limit but it also depends on how naughty they was or what they did wrong over time they will get the i dear u not joken around let him laugh ignore it ( i know it is hard to do but u need to stay farm on the discipline) no child is never the same it is harder to discipline boys then it is girls after 2 mints are up go back and tell him in a cram voice " do u know why i put u on the naughty chair?" make sure u get eye contact and if he don't respond to u then tell him in a cram but farm voice what he did wrong and tell him "u need to stop this behavior it is not nice"
then ask polity for him to say sorry to u and ask for a hug and a kiss and let him go if this continues just repeat the processes till he understands what he is doing wrong he will stop in hes own time i hope this helps wish u much luck :D be strong and u will do well

I won't quote you that it is because he is a boy. What types of discipline have you done? If you do not follow through with it totally and keep it up (consistant) then it is not going to work. If you have not started using no when he was old enough to get the gist of it then he thinks he is going to get away with it. He is also testing you too. I am not sure what to tell you.
