i have a two and a half year old that doesnt listen to anything i say we have tried putting her in her room which now only has a bed n cupboard in it and we have tried time out, with time out she will sit there n either coax her brother 1 over to play with or just sit there n do her time however when we have finished her timeout i try to speak to her n all she does is contantlys say sorry or ok mum as she has worked out by saying sorry she is allowed to play again but goes straight back to doin as she wants, she is also very cheeky she back chats all the time i am now atthe point of not knowing what to do with her as she can be in time out all day on and off and still constantly being told off or put in time out help me get this under control before number three is here.

Since time out isn't working start taking her toys away. She has learnt that she does her time out and things go back to normal, you now have to to give her longer lasting consequencences. I learnt that thowing the toys out had a great effect on my older ones.

You don't have to throw them out permanately, just put them in a rubbish bag and hide them. They then have to do jobs to earn them back.
