I have a very defiant 2 1/2 year old, which Im sure is very common...well, my DH works A LOT and we are trying to get on the same page as far as what she's allowed to do and what she isn't....some of this is common sense, such as hitting, smacking, etc....Im wondering about toys and things like that...what warrants a time out with you?? How long do they stay in timeout?? What are they allowed to get away with??? This is causing some problems with us, b/c when my DH IS home my daughter only wants him...I am frustrated b/c I want to have fun as a family and do things when he actually gets a day off. But that doesn't happen. The day is stressful and a nightmare. She does nothing but scream and try to get away with murder....I have such a routine with her, but since he doesn't have any consistency in his time off, it's hard for him to establish routine...just looking for some ideas here. And please be courteous. I've been told by some mommies that I need a time out. Im not looking for those answers. I really want to know what you do. Thanks so much :)

I am still trying with my own son who is 2 1/2 himself. lol so i will let you know when that happens. But for the time span of a time out i was told was 1 min for however old they are so if they are 2 that is 2 minutes 3 yr old 3 mins and so on. I am actually looking forward to see the other moms answers.
