Calm down and take a deep breath!!!!!and sigh......my youngest is 17month and testing the water at the moment luckily I have been blessed(this time)with a placid,chilled out boy,not that I can say the same for my eldest lol.at 18mnths he hasn't yet the ability to listen and understand you all you need to show him is no=he's not going to do it eg if he's about to say get something off the window ledge he carnt have just say no and turn him in another direction yes he will probly go back meby once or 50times lol but consistence with the word no is very important,my lad smirks when I say no and he goes to do it lol that's just the cheekiness of kids for u lol gotta love em hope this helps n Gud luck with baby number 2
