  • Mostly redirection. Away from the forbidden towards something safe. "Look, here's your toy." They don't comprehend alot at 15 mos, however, for some things that were becoming "battlegrounds" like the dog food, or climbing on table to touch lamps, and after 1000's of redirection, and when I could tell by his little non-verbal eyes and see that he knows at least this couple of things that I want him to stay away from....I put him in the playpen w/o TV or toys and set a timer for 1 minute. He didn't like it. I said, No lamp--timeout or No dog food--timeout, several times, and took him out after 1 minute. I kid you not, after 2 times, I said, "Do you want timeout? No, no" He moved away himself and looked for something else. To be honest, I wish I could say, and that's worked ever since. But that worked for us at 15 mos. Be patient, it will get better!

  • I agree with tabbys4,my son is in his terrible 3's. He doesn't listen to me at all. I haven't tried it yet but other moms were saying that time outs work at that age.
