Ok my son is 3 years old and it seems like he skipped terrible twos because he was really good when he was 2 but now that he's 3 it's a WHOLE different world. He doesn't respond to no, time-out does no good regardless of how long he sits there. I don't want to resort to spanking because I never was spanked as a child but my husband like if he's being bad in a restaurant such as screaming really loudly for no reason or trying to get up and run around will pinch him (not hard but lightyly) and I just hate that and it only seems to make him mader and act up more. I really need some suggestions ladies cause I'm running out of options and I feel like anyone who is around and sees my child ask like this is like geez she needs to do something about that.. I just don't know what to do :( Please Help!Answer Question

Hmm.....wish I could help. Our DS turned three in Sept and it's been smooth sailing. Yup. Life's a dream....
No really - I think the "terrible twos" are a myth that parents tell each other in their aged years....threes are hard, hard, hard!
Aren't you sweet taking him to restaurants? Always, ALWAYS make sure you have an exit strategy. Give him a warning and then BOOM - out the door. You can always go back in once he's calmed down - otherwise send your hubby a text to get you a take-out box.
