terrible two's

I need help!!! I feel that I try hard to discipline my 2 boys and follow through with consequences. However, my 2 yr old does not respond well to anything. We've tried talking through our issues, time outs, spankings....nothing works. The more I get on to him...the more he pushes back. He is very headstrong!!!!

It's really becoming an issue for us....any suggestions?

I recommend Dr. Sears' book called "The Discipline Book." His advice has totally worked in our situation. Its a difficult time because they are just learning to have opinions, and express feelings, and try things (even things they shouldn't).... its an important part of development for them and an important part of shaping behavior for us moms, but I agree with you that it can be very frustrating.....
