My youngest DD has been testing the limits at school and home for about 6 months now. She is 2. When it started I thought it may have been out of frustration, not being easily understood and not fully verbal. Now the pediatrician is having us work on looking for patterns: is she tired, hungry, etc. Fact is she is a very smart little girl. Smarter than I think he can convey, which makes me think it might be, at least in part frustration. But she loves to get reactions out of people, which was fine when she was getting laughs, but now it doesn't matter if it's laughs or being put in time out etc. We have tried time outs, removing from the situation, even spanking (please don't judge, we tried, it wasn't effective and we were torn on it to begin with) I don't know what else to try.Answer Question

She is only 2. And you think she should know here collors already. I think you are pushing her a little to much. She needs to know her colors to tell you what a color is. Maybe she is getting frustrated because you are wanting things out of her that she is not ready for. Kids at 2 can be defiant.
