  • Don't jump to ADHD. My son is 3 and none stop ALL DAY! We've done time outs since he was a year old. (Not real time outs until he was 2). Real timeouts. He sits still(ish), faces the wall and can not cry or talk. Sometimes his 3 minute timeouts last 20 minutes, but sooner or later he gets the point.

    You have to let him know that there are rules in the house. And that if he breaks the rule there is a punishment.

    Stand your ground.

  • contact your local school district for an evaluation i found that its never to early they can help... otherwise time outs work in our house or another idea is to bring in the car seat and strap em down for 2 minutes...

  • time outs work well for me, and no talking she can cry all she wants and she has to face the wall. depends on what shes getting a time out for can range from 2 mins to 20 mins and if she gets up it starts over. i feel so bad doing it but sometimes a good time out will calm them down. make sure you tell him why hes got a time out and ask if hes going to do it again if he says yes "which mine does sometimes". i tell her no your not going to do---- whatever again are you. And if shes did something to her sister i make her tell her shes sorry and give her hug and kiss.
