i have a 21 month old daughter and she just wont do anything i ask. she shouts no at me whenever i ask her to do anything, she throws herself on the floor, she sometimes hits herself, she has hit me in the face before, she kicks me. she just wont listen to me!! i also have a 6 month old boy who she adored at first but now she is always shouting at him telling him off making him cry, she can be really horrible to him. i just dont know what to do any more. i've tried time-out but that doesn't work. im loosing my mind. she dont like being left with anyone, she doesn't even like people touching me. what can i do?? its not fair on me or my son to have to go though this everyday. has anyone got any advice??

well if your daughter says no to you, put her in time out, if she gets up, get up and put her back, a 2yo time out should be for about 2 minutes.. they don't enough of an attention span to deal with longer time outs than that. if she hits you, i would spank her hand and tell her no and put her in time out, for 2 minutes. if yells at the baby, put her in time out and make her apologize. time out will be your best friend. make her sit. When my kids would continue to get out of time out before time was over, i would swat their butt and put them back... many parent's here don't agree with a swat on the butt, but it worked for me.
