I have a two years old baby girl and I have a hard time making her listen to me without me yelling or getting mad at her. I do feel terrible about it though. Any advice?

We all do it. Try speaking to her in a quiet voice. It's very bizarre but they really try to listen because it's so different than what they are used to :) Hope that helps.

I have the same problem with my four year old. I use time out and counting to three now. If I get to three she knows I mean business and she's the youngest of three so my being upset just makes her laugh, counting and DOING IT, following through, is very important if you want counting to three to work though. good luck!
