I'm a stay at home mom, and my daughter 24mths always seems to challenge me when i tell her not to do something. Its like i say don't do and then she does it ugh some days lol. so really whats the best way to get her to listen.
Also i have a different question on getting her to sleep in her own room. She sleeps with me and her daddy since she was born and i really want to get her to sleep in her own bed! I have and little toddler bed but then she just gets right out i put back in and she gets right out. I was thinking mabey getting a crib again and starting that way so that she can't get out..... i don't know help!!
We put our 24month old in her room with plenty of night lights and shut the door, sometimes she falls asleep on the floor but usually stays in bed. As long as her room is baby proof she will be fine in there. I know it will be hard but when she cries just put her back. As far a discipline try a time out chair of a time out play pen, it might take awhile but eventually she will understand that if you do something wrong you get put in the naughty place

I wrote a journal on how to get your child to sleep in their bed in their room - it DOES work... MY SLEEP JOURNAL
As for normal discipline - That is simple. Be 100% consistent. 100% of the time. 1. Warning 2. time out 3. explain why you put her there/ huggs/ all over. 4. If she gets OUT of the time out - put her back, each time, no talking from you - no communication at atll. 5. If she is out & out defiant - SPANK - followed by a time out.
The key is CONSISTENCY.
