I'm starting the toddler stage with my son, he' throws fits, doesn't listen and tries to push the boundaries. I know this could be just the terrible two's but the other day he took a wooden stick from his toy and kept trying to fit me in the face with it, I said no firmly and I my husband wants to do timeouts, but they aren't working. I don't know if I'm not doing correctly. so I ask what displine do you or did you use on your toddler, He's only 19 months old.
thanks for your help in advance.

It may take him a little while to get the concept of time outs but he will. I use time outs for DS and they work. If he gets out of time out his time starts over. He is 2 now so he sits for 2 minutes. I start a timer on the stove and when it dings I go over and tell him why he was put in time out. That I love him and why he can't do what he did. Then he has to say sorry to me or whom ever was involved and give them a hug. Some days he is in there 20 times in seems but other days not at all.

My husband and I took a Love & Logic parenting class when our twins were 17 months old. It worked great for us. If you can find a class in your area I highly recommend it. If a class isn't an option there are lots of books, CDs, and DVDs available on the Love and logic website or possibly at your local library.
