  • when my son was 2 he never yelled at me, but I think if he did I would have to recheck how I acted in front of him cause he probably learned how to yell at me from me yelling at him or someone else.

  • Get down to her level and explain to her that is not acceptable. Tell her nicely to stop yelling at you and why you don't want her to yell at you. Tell her that you can hear her just fine without her yelling at you

  • try really hard to remember that she is 2 and not yell back...then I either give her a time out or put her in her room depending on how bad it was.

  • I tell her not to yell and if she does it again she goes in time out for 2 minutes,

  • I calmly pick up my son, put him in his room and tell him when he can control his voice, he can come out. Then i go to my room and say a prayer.

  • I have an almost 2 year old. And I usually put him in his room and tell him "When he can behave himself he can come out."
