My daughter is stressing me out I know toddlers r about testing limits but this is crazy she doesn't listen AT ALL and if u try to put her in time out or tell her to sit there she can't it's as if she's on a sugar high all the time I don't know wat I'm doing wrong she's got so many people around her that love her and she gets alot of positive attention I jst don't no how to deal with her? Of anyone else is experiencing this I'd love to hear ur thoughts! Thanks

Amy--I have two grown children and even though they are adults it was not that long ago they were little kids. My daughter was fairly easy to deal with and had not much trouble with her. My son did give me a few bouts of problems from time to time. But I had to also pick my battles with him in some areas. Some things as they get older are not worth fighting over as long as they have the basic concept that you mean business.

When you do time out it is one minute for each year of her age so if she is 3 years old then it is 3 minutes. You need to be firm in your handling of her breaking rules and doing things you do not want her to do. You are the parent and need to set the boundaries.

Yes I try to b consistent but I hav to admit she does not how to wrk me so I'm guessing wat ur saying is make sure to b stern with my discipline and not put her in a 4 or 5 min time out unless I intend on being tough and sticking with it! Thanks I will try it now u r right I think I jst needed to hear it so thanks !
