Like everyone else be consistant, have eyes in the back of your head. Don't let one time go by that you don't do something about what he is doing. I hear a lot of moms just threaten their kid but never really do something about it. If you say your gonna do something if they do it one more time then you need to follow through with it.

I have a two year old and nothing ever seemed to work with her but I started to put her into preschool one day a week which is heaven lol, She now either sits on the front door mat or I send her away until she is "happy". Its great she goes and whinges for a while and then she wanders in smiling and says she is happy. I just kept sending her back out till she got the message!! Now the threat of sending her out works. You probably know yourself you end up more frustrated trying to make a two year old stay put on a naughty step! at least with sending them out they arent with you and they still get the message. Good luck though!!

My son is the same way, I just try to be consistent like the other mom said. I think at this age they are trying to figure out the ways of the world and trying to see just how far they can push us.

I agree with Tiffany. Being consistent is key. I have a two yr old and he just doesn't understand discipline; yet I consistantly try to discipline him when he is doing wrong. It's a way to show him that he's behavior is not acceptable. It wears me out but I'm hoping that it'll pay off in the end. I also always try to be polite; "Please sit down" and "Thank you for listening". I know he understands praise and it seems to be working! I can tell he is proud of himself for listening!

I think part of it is the age. They just push and push at this age. My daughter was born May 20, 2006. Do you use time out? Even though it is not always a solution that works full proof, it gives me a chance to catch my breath sometimes when she is really getting me. I actually said the same thing just a couple of days ago, "it doesn't matter what the discipline". I think consistency that as moms/parents that we do not accept the behavior is the best we can do, and eventually (who knows when of course) they will choose to not continue the same behavior. That is what I am counting on. Until then, good luck, and stay strong!!
