Stefany, your 10 month old does not have the self-control required for compliance. Save the "discipline" for 6-12 months down the road. Focus on teaching which behaviors are desirable, but do not expect him to be compliant. And remember that getting angry and crying is part of the game. It does NOT mean you are doing something wrong.

Saying no is one of the worst tactics to use. It's not giving him a choice. Try saying, "Why don't we do this or this instead?" How old is he?
