Yes, sounds like a control battle. Have you read Dr. Phil's book "Family First"? I highly recommend it. Sometimes changing your parenting style makes all the difference in the world. The difference between saying, " Pick your toys up right now, you know better than to leave your toys on the floor and (Child's name) will you please help mommy out by picking up your toys for me?"

I have one of those stubborn, thinks everything is negotiable, and pushes my buttons son! Forget terrible 2's we are going through terrible 3's. I have found that being more consistence with discipline and not even sliding on anything really works. IF I slide the least lil bit oh he takes that and runs with it. I love him but man I swear he is going to be an only child! lol (I am really serious about the only child part) Potty training was another issue we have mastered only b/c we backed off and had dont care attitude about it. As soon as we stopping caring either way he potty trained himself! It is nice I am not alone...let us remember that next time our kids are throwing a fit b/c he lost his toy that he/she decided to chuck at one of our heads. LOl
