My daughter is 14 months old, she's getting to know she's being naughty, because the minute you stand up to move her away/clean up something (usually her spit or milk from when she tries to 'draw' with it) she stands up and tries to hide the evidence straight away.
she'll quickly turn the dvd player off, or try to wipe whatever away. she doesn't listen to 'no' or respond to her name, so distracting her is hard to do. my mum just bought 2 new cushions a different colour and twice tonight when she was naughty i put a cushion in the corner and sat her on it.
of course she has no concept of time and didn't stay there for her minute, but she seemed to 'get' that she was in trouble.
what age did you put kids on 'the step' or in the corner? mand x
