She grew horns over night?!

My dd will be 17 months next week and all day she's been a little terror. She usually listens and she's usually my little angel. Today all she's doing is throwing things, hitting, yelling, she won't nap, she keeps trying to get into things she knows are a no no, she's throwing fits when she doesn't get her way, when i tell her no she gives me the mean look and tells ME no! When i try redirection she hits and goes right back to it. I'm so frustrated lol!! I'm bathing her and putting her to bed a little early tonight. Is this the terrible two's starting early? Please tell me my angel will be back tomorrow! Lol. What do you do when telling them no and redirecting them doesn't work?

  • time out.

    if it fails, try again.

    it it fails again, try again.

    if it fails once more, i believe that a swift tap on the butt (and by tap, i mean a very light tap. just enough to let them know that you've put your hand on them, not even enough to cause any amount of pain. the shock factor of the tap will work.) is in order. trust me, it works.

  • Welcome to the life of a two year old. My daughter started her phase at 16 months, will be 4 in a few days and hasn't stopped yet.
