  • I have always tried the reward chart but as a toddler understands more that phase goes away. The next stage is to take away a fav toy for the afternoon until you see your child is listening to you and not being so sassy.

  • depending on what it is and how much it happens try taking his pants down and spanking him. not more then a few slaps(3-4 at most) but you won't need to at that age.

  • Reverse Psychology. Read all about it. I make things sound like they're my son's idea, but really they're mine.

  • I think the reward thing is a really good idea.
