Oooh I feel you! I like to say my son's favorite activity is ignoring me lol. Time outs don't work for him either, and he doesn't value anything enough to care if I take it away yet. So, I've learned that the best method so far is literally getting down to his level and making him look at me and ask "excuse me? did you hear what I said?" and then usually he will do what I ask. It is very trying to have to get up and correct him every few minutes especially when I'm in the middle of doing something but it's the only thing I know to do. I will be the first to admit that no, I don't always have 100% control over my strong-willed 2 year old with a complete mind of his own, but it's a work in progress so hopefully with consistency he'll get the hang of it lol.
