I have two year olds, PATIENCE and KINDNESS are your best tools at this age.... Also, read "SuperNanny" book, it is great!!! I've bought a lot of books and so far, that is by far the most helpful for discipline that works! My two year olds are now very nice to each other and show respect and kindness. It takes ALOT of repetition on your part, A LOT of patience on your part.
And P.S. We don't spank either!! We get results the longer but more lovingly and respectfully toward our children, try to understand why they are doing it, and talk to them a lot, explain things to them a lot, they want to "learn" but they are only 2 and it takes time, consistensy, and patience on your part. Like I said, read that book, jo frost is very helpful and doesn't hit or spank either. Always remember to respect and be kind to your little one too. Good Luck!!!!!
