I have a 15-month 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 turn off the TV 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:(
I also have a 15 month old, and at this time they are just now beginning to learn, so please be patient. the #1 thing I have learned is be consistent. Don't give in. I know it's tiring, and yes they will not "get it" over night...or for that matter for a while, but this is an every day learning process, and the more you are consistent with them, the more they will learn. While your 15 month old isn't quite at the age of really, fully understanding, she is gradually learning. She's not ready for the "naughty spot" yet, but at age 2 you should be able to practice that. Right now, it's all about being consistent. A little tap on the leg and a "No" does pay off..Even if you have to do it several times.
