I am so frustrated with telling my 20 month old NO. He is so stubborn and I feel like I am telling him no all day. Then when I discipline him I feel terrible. It is sooo frustrating!! Does anyone else feel like this ever? Does anyone have any good tricks for disciplining toddlers?? Times out are out of the question as his attention span is like 2 minutes long!Answer Question

Stop saying no!
I have a 23 mo grandson I take care of every other day so I know what it's like to take care of a child this age and I rarely say no. When you save no and stop for emergencies then these words work. If it's not an emergency there are plenty of other things you can do. Here is a famous article about the foolishness of saying no
A good book is Love & Limits by Elizabeth Crary. She has a website called star parenting.
