What should I do when my 2 year old daughter gives me an attitude like a 15 year old girl? Sometimes she will tell me, Mom I will spank you... Ugh!

She has learnt this response from someone! At 2 she will test the boundaries so be prepared. Use time out as this is most effective as children hate to be ignored. If you warn her and she still misbehaves then you must carry out the punishment. For a child of her age time out is 2 minutes. This does not seem very long but believe me it will feel a long time to her.
