My son is 2-1/2 so I know it is a testing age anyway but I also know he's smart enough to try to get away with as much as possible.. Is giving a child this age only 2 chances too strict? I ask him to please lay down, its time to get Pj's on.. he runs.. I ask him again, then if he doesn't.. he gets a toy taken away. I will ask him to please take the flashlight handle out of his mouth, ask him again, then take it away.. is that too harsh for this age? I don't really know how to pick my battles because I struggle then with not being consistent enough - or him not listening to me when I "mean it" you know? Do you do the 1, 2, 3 counting or how do you deal with a strong willed personality anyway??!
