I can't count yet because my daughter will count with me. I tell her in a stern voice that she has one more chance to fix/apologize for whatever is going on or she goes to the corner for a time out. For now, it works and she apologizes with hugs and kisses. Going to the corner is the worst thing she can imagine right now because there's no toys or anything -- just her little behind on the blue throw rug. If she tries to come out early, she starts over. We do one minute per year (she's two, so two minutes).

I hope this helps! Good luck!

I count.. if I get to 3 she goes into a corner. I tell her what she did was bad.. course she always uses that cute voice... Baad? Its all in the tone of your voice and they will try everything to press that button.. least mine did/does.
