I swear we go through about 50 a day here; spanking, time-outs... None of it works! And she's only 20 months old! fml... So, ladies: how do YOU deal with a bratty toddler? I'm about to start smoking again, I'm so stressed...

Personally I go with the put them in their room method for tantrums. When Chris (almost 3) starts up I get down on his level and tell him "Tantrums will not get you what you want. If you continue you will have to go to your room to find your happy face" Then I give him a minute to choose. I have walked my son up to his room many times and had him calm down within minutes, but I've also had a few times where the tantrum has continued for a while and resulted in him falling asleep. I usually chalk those tantrums up to being overtired. What ever you choose to do be consistent.
