Only answer this question if you're familiar with Supernanny's techniques and can provide a Supernanny answer.
My daughter is 4. We do use Jo's techniques. We have a reward chart to reward good behavior and we have a naughty spot for when she doesn't listen. We use the "stay in bed technique" to get her to stay in bed. We place her back in bed without speaking to her. When we go to public places, (i.e. store, restaurant), we tell her what behavior we expect from her before entering and we use the naughty spot if she misbehaves inside there.
Today, a little before 9:00 AM, my daughter hit my wife. My wife got down to her level and gave her a warning. "You do not hit mommy. If you hit again, you are going to the naughty spot." My daughter hit her again so she placed her on the naughty spot for 4 minutes and explained to her why she was placed on the naughty spot. "(Insert name), you are on the naughty spot because you hit me when I asked you to stop. You will stay here for 4 minutes." My daughter keeps up and up. She screamed, scratched and made a mess. It is now 7:00 PM and my daughter is still getting up. The most I have seen a child on the show get up for 3 hours. Any advice on getting her to stay on the naughty spot for 4 minutes?
