I have a 11-month-old girl who wont listen to us (my husband and I) at all. She screams whenever wants something and wont stop doing that unless gets what she wants, more over, if we tell her not to do something, for instant, not to remove her socks she ignores us and will do it. We tried not to tell her "don't" all the time but encourage her many times when she does good things.
I read Suppernanny's advice about naughty spot but don't know that in what age I can start it? in addition, we talk to her firmly when she does naughty thing, try to stay calm to make her follow the order but it doesn't work. Please help me:(

Imo opinion the "naughty" spot won't work for her because she is too young. I think that works better when they are two and over. They love to take their socks off. She is not doing it to just be bad. Sounds like what you are doing now is good. If you continue just talking to her and maybe redirect her to something else it will get better. My youngest is 20 months and I feel she knows exactly what she is doing. So when she doesn't listen and keeps doing whatever she is doing at that moment I put her in "baby jail" for a bit, AKA her playpen. She will cry for a minute or two then she is fine. I will ask her if she is going to be good and she says yes. I don't know what she is saying but there has been a few times where she has pointed her finger at me telling me off in her own baby talk then goes off with her arms crossed.
