How can I get my kids to listen to me?

My son is extremely stubborn and does not listen to anything I say.. I know he is two but he should at least listen a little. I just don't know what to do anymore..

  • They hear you but they don't listen... Try getting down to their level and talking because if they are across the room -forget it! Mine does the same thing and so does my teenager LOL

  • you have to guide them (gently) at that age and follow through with what you have asked them. 2 is very young don't expect too much

  • Say something once, say it a bit louder and make sure they're paying attention. If that doesn't work...spank.
