She is such a good girl, no tantrums, no biting, no hitting. But she does not listen....she can hear very well, she just refuses to listen when I talk to her. Even just calling her name, she will NOT look at me. I can stand right in front of her and she will look away....when I tell her no she laughs at me...I am not very good with discipline...actually, she has really never been disciplined out side of stern "NO"s here and there. I have tried time out but she thinks that is a game also....she creeps out of the corner and when I sternly tell her she has to sit back down she squeals running back to the place I sat her in.
Is this just a phase? How do I manage this? I would so appreciate any advice on "discipline" for a 20 month old...I just don't believe in spanking (for my own child) and I cannot yell..
I am a single mom, the separation was hard on her. She is a good girl...I just want her to stay that way!
