Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

At two she can be placed in time out but you need to be prepared to place her back a lot until she gets that there is a consequence and that you will not let her win.  I am very fond of a step because typically it is somewhere you can see from your livingroom but does not allow her to see tv's or play

SPANK HER ASS! LET HER KNOW THAT YOU MEAN BUSINESS, AND YOUR NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS CRAP ANYMORE. YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN. YOU ARE THE PARENT, NOT HER. YOU NEED TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT HER BEHAVIOR IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, AND THERE ARE CONSEQUENSES FOR HER ACTIONS. UNTIL YOU DO THAT, YOUR PROBLEM WILL ONLY GET WORSE. TIME OUT DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK, BUT SPANKING HER BUTT HARD ENOUGH TO GET THE MESSAGE ACROSS DOES WORK. OUR GOVT, DID THE SAME THING WITH SHOCK AND AWE TO GET THE ATTENTION ON AFGHANISTAN, ETC. WE ARE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF A WAR, AND CONTINUE TO SWIM DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO DEBT.

My preferred way of handling things is choosing between one of three normal punishments or a combination.  I.E. My daughter acts up and throws a tantrum, first I send her to the corner.  She gives attitude or comes out, she gets a spanking.  Really nno one can tell you how to get her to stop but her.  Experiment but be consistent with correcting her.  You will find something that works, even it means taking away her precious toy, cup, or the like.  At 2 my daughter did respond the best to time out.  Now she responds better to having things taken away and somewhere between now and then she listened better to a firm hand on her butt.  I don't encourage BEATING your child though.  If you are too angry to calmly spank her without causing accidental harm, walk away and deal with it in a minute after you breathe.
