We are going through the VERY defiant age of 2.5. My husband and I need some 'outside' the box, new ideas, for working with our son on this one. Our patience level is great, but our son seems to be frustrated all the time. He's such a good boy, I just want him to be happy :)

My guess is that he is trying to see how far he can push you. My 3 year old does the same thing and he tries everything from not listening to throwing a fit. One thing you could try is to have no reaction at all when he does something you dont want him to do. Unless of course he is going to hurt himself or someone else. Maybe that will show him that just because he acts up doesnt mean he is going to get your attention. Hope it helps.
