what punishment do you use for your about 25mos old???

my sweet baby girl is really testing me these days. She use to be so sweet and calm. She is the youngest of 3. Its typical terrible 2 stuff. She tries to be a BULLY to her older sibling! Right now she just yanked a bottle water out of her 5 yr old sisters hand. i sternly told her to give it back...I saw her eyes she was considering running with it! LOL But she gave it back and proceeded with her tantrum at which time I instructed her to go to the corner and to my surprise she ran and went! LOL Usully I have her sit and just take her away from the situation.

I was curious what do others do for discipline at this age? My older kids are 5 and 6 so its been a few years and my oldest NEVER had terrible 2's. When he talked was when he tested me more and he did not talk well till almost 3. I did not know what terrible 2's were till my 5 tr old hit them at around 18mos!

  • I always did time out for my 2 year olds. Always with a warning first, like how Supernanny does it.

  • I have been sending temper tantrums to her room. Otherwise I give warnings and then follow through on whatever I said that I would do. My LO can only come out when she actually calms down. I have to sit so that I can see the entrance to her room so that if she starts to come out still screaming I can point and she will go back. They usually last about 10-15 min.

  • i do time outs, and if the temper is bad, i send them to bed. they actually relax a bit and come back downstairs happy.
