My three year old is going through a really bad stage. I'm use to her telling me no and not listening. We put her in the cornor or give her a time out in her bedroom. Now she is starting something new, having an attitude about everything. Now it's not just telling us no it's saying with an attitude and nothing I am doing is helping. I am wonder what some of y'all have done it simular situations?

My daughter is 2 1/2 and I just posted a similar question. We have been trying the time out chair with her. She is starting to understand that she is going to sit there until she changes her attitude. The only problem with that is once she calms down and is allowed up her attitude comes right back. Other than that I don't have much advice at this point. Sorry.

My two year old son is getting really bad with his attitude. When I tell him no, he hits me. He acts really good put in public, he gives me looks but he never screams. He only screams and hits when we are at home. He is very independent.

It's nice to know that I am not the only one going throught this! It really helps to know that other kids around her age are doing the same thing, and there moms are experanceing the same things I am. It's frustrating especially when you don't know what to do!

I unfortunetly do not have a solution for your problem, Symantha, but I am a first time parent, and I am going through the same thing you are. My 3 yr old is giving us lots of attitude and throwing lots of fits out in public when she cannot have her way and she just screams like we are beating her. I understand the fits for her age, but I thought the attitude came much later on.... kids for the most part try your patience and try not to listen as much as possible, so that is typical for a 3 yr old, but this attitude, man! I am at my witts end sometimes.... I just let her get it out, and put her in her room until she changes her attitude instead of making myself aggitated. The fits irk me most in the car. I think it is because I cannot get away from the screaming. That bothers me.
