When I tell my two year old to do something it seems to make him rebel even more. When we are out in public he acts out and wants to cry and tantrum. I think I have tried every method. He's a good boy at times. I just want his behavior to be much better. I teach him right from wrong. I spend a lot of time with him also because I'm unemployed and I have a one month old new born. Plzzz help

Try not to raise your voice. If you want him to put his toys away for example, go down to him and say in a soft tone Its time to put your toys away,be a big boy and do it. Tell him he did a great job if he does something you ask him to. I also learned not to ask a child to do something, like i dont ask will you put your toys away now,because that is a question. Rather say ist time to clean your room now. You could also try making a star Chart board. Get some star Stickers and make a Chart board. He can get a star for alot of things,listening to mommy,brushing teeth well,helping etc. Goodluck
