thank you i ve been trying alot of differnent thing with her, but it just doesnt seem to be working very well. alot of people have been telling me that putting her in time out when she misbehaves is wrong but that is one of the only things that works even a little.

it is important to talk about what you want to see when she is doing well and calm...i need you to be friendly by...i need you to be obedient by...so she clearly kmnows what you are looking for...and because she is challenging you a lot be looking closely for things she is doing right and acknowledge....she needs positive specific direction from you to want more of it...she is calling for love by acting out...holding her, telling her you love her, asking her what will help you to be calm, gentle, obey? explain what runs over me means...i am a parenting coach and can help you

I think 3yo behavior can be a lot worse than 2yo. I think what we had trouble with was finding the right consequences for bad behaviors. Another thing is that you need to demand the respect you deserve. If you don't get it, there are consequences. I have been using extra chores as consequences, scrubbing floors, washing windows, etc. If they don't want to do the chores, then they can spend time in their room until ready to do so. Love and logic materials were very helpful to us. Hope you find something that works for your daughter.
