ps. we dont use "time out" because your time out spot is usually at home and so when out and about it is ineffective because they know you didnt bring their naughty chair or room or whatever with you. just my thoughts on seeing it not work so well with some kids in my life.

We use a couple of different methods for disciplining our almost 2 year old boy, hunter. If he is doing something that he needs to be taught not to do but is not putting himself in danger, ie. throwing a ball at the wall or trying to pull the dogs tail, i after telling him "no" and physically taking him away from what he is doing i let him resume playing, if he does it again he gets a "hunter this is your last warning" but i do not move him away, if he continues to be naughty he gets flicked in the hand (if he was touching something) or on the foot (if he was kicking), or in very few and extreme cases a swat on the bottom (ex. when he repeatedly pulling the dogs ears/tail). We have been using this method for about 9 months and now when he hears "last warning" he usually stops what he is doing and walks away.



In public when he is acting up, or throwing a fit i usually use the same method, or if we are in a place where he can throw a fit without disturbing the world (ex. at grandmas house), i let him and i walk away telling him to come find me when hes ready to be a big boy again. without the audiance it isnt nearly as fun to have a fit.



 



hope that helps, and makes sense :) good luck, they sure have a mind of their own.

I have a two year old princess.... when she does something inappropriate or misbehaves or just throws a fit because she thinks she can. We just take her hand and walk her back to her bed. (That is her time-out seat). We tell her that when she is ready to be good (or when she is ready to stop screaming for no reason) she can get a toy and come back out to the living room. Usually she will sit in there or lay down for about 2 - 5 minutes .... and then she comes back out happy. If she comes out still upset and screaming we just walk her back and explain what she did wrong or remind her she needs to calm down first. Usually it works the first time. If it doesn't work then it will the second time.



We like this method because we don't have to raise our voices. We just take her hand and walk her back there. If she is really throwing a fit sometimes we need to carry her. But that few minutes alone in her room helps because she has no audience and no one is paying attention to her.



:-) good luck!

I have a few ways...



Put them in time out...one specific spot in the house (like the PP said).



We do believe in spankings in my house too, and they are rarely used because they know what a spanking is. Usually we ask if they need a spanking and they say "no" and cover their butts and run.



Anything you try will take a little getting used to, but after a while it will be second nature for both of you. : )
