ok so i have a 19 month old terrorist lol and his time outs are like a war zone. he refuses to sit for the 2 minutes that i sit him for and cries and throws hell tantrums the whole time while trying to get up and run away. one day a 2 minute time out took ave 40 to complete (of course nanny jo says reset the clock if they get up) so is that like really abnormal or is he not the only one that can throw a good fit! lol

Stay consistent and be persistent momma! My DD has been taking T.O.'s since she was about 17 mos. It wasn't easy, but now I only have to mention TO and she discontinues the negative behavior. If he gets up, simply return him to the designated T.O. spot and say, "Your T.O. will begin when you sit quietly". Of course it will take some time and alot of energy from you, but eventually it will be effective :-) Good luck!
