I have an 18 month old, and she is very smart. Latley she has started to tell me no, and will run off when I try to get her to do something, like lay down and change your diaper, or she is climbing on the coffee table, and I tell her no she will shake her head no at me and giggle untill I get up to take down. And she is hitting her brother, he is so gentle with her that he wont tell her no, I have to, but because he is that way she thinks it is funny. I do get up and immediately take care of it when she doesnt listen, but is she old enough to start like a 1 or 2 minute time out with her? She understands everything and is just testing to see if she has to listen or not.

I used to stick my son in the play pen for time out he got three mins or so. And before i would take him out i would tell him he needed to listen or he was going back in. It took a few weeks but he got it. He's just about two now and he get put in the corner when he's not listening although we haven't had to do it very much since now he'll listen.
