  • i think its a 3 yr old thing. my daughter is going through a stage where if i put her in time out she looks at me laughs and makes a run for it. i am also 7 months preg so chasing her really isn't an option after too long. and i would put her in her room with the gate up but then she'll just play and well that defeats the purpose. i'm hoping its a 3 yr old/new baby thing. i really have no answer just nice to see someone else with the same problem

  • My 3 year old is the drama queen of a life time but when I have had it I put her to bed and walk out within a few minutes she comes out no more hissy fit and acts right, she back talks and say I don't have to, my answer to that is yes you do if you want...... usuall she wants cartoons or a cheap little andy she does what she is told to get what she wants we trade it works so far..
