  • Well, what do you do AFTER you tell her no? Like say she is reaching for something she isn't supposed to, and you say NO and put it up, what do you do then? It's important to facilitate another activity she enjoys so she is distracted from the situation. Like take her into the other room and laugh and play and let her color/ play with blocks, read a book, whatever you 2 enjoy doing. It's important to distract her cause you can't expect a 2 yo to walk away from a situation, you know what I mean?

    What your 2 year old is doing is totally normal 2 yo behavior.

  • or.....competely ignore her. you have told her no so she wants attention now. whether it is negative attention hench the throwing up or positive attention do as the lady above suggested distract her from the thing she is doing or ignore her however i wouldn't use bribes as then she will throw it bakck at you when she is a litltle older for example

  • well it happens at night when she doesnt want to go to bed. she has a toddler bed and can get in n out of it whenever she wants. i will keep putting her back in her bed when she gets up. eventually she will just end up screaming and crying until she throws up. its frustrating cause i have to let her get up anyways to clean everything up. i dont want her to be spoiled.

  • Have her help clean it up. As she's crying, tell her that if she pukes, she will clean it up and that she'd better not do it. Stick to what you've said, don't give in to keep her from puking. No means no and she will figure it out quickly.

  • OMg you people this is a 2 year old we're talking about! Whip her, ignore her, show her who's boss. Jesus! These poor children need guidance not a beating and over exerting control!

    Did she used to eb a good sleeper? Maybe she's going through something! Maybe hse's scared, having nightmares, etc.

    Have some compassion!

  • It could be her diet. Try reading Is This My Child? by Dr. Doris Rapp. She also has a website. Another source on diet and behavior issues is www.feingold.org. I used all these resources and my daughter became much easier to deal with, but if she eats the wrong food -artifical colors and flavors, BHA, BHT, TBHQ. She has temper tantrums, cannot concentrate, won't listen to us, and is a handful.
