  • I take away priveleges, and I'm consistent. It works really well for us!

  • Set your rules and stick to them. When they aren't followed take away a privilege. If you stick with it it will work, nothing works overnight.

  • Sounds like you aren't being consistent. Time outs work great in our house, and my son is 2. You could watch some super nanny episodes to get some ideas. They are all on youtube. lol! Good Luck.

  • How about teaching them right the first time? Take parenting more seriously. If that doesn't work then try taking a parenting class.
