My 3 year old does not listen. The other day I was at the doctors office and we were sitting in the waiting room and she decides that she doesn't want to sit next to me she wants to sit around the corner in one of the chairs well I had my baby with so I wouldn't let her sit there. We are sitting and she is having a few m&m's so once they are done she then runs to the other side and wants to try and kill a fly. I pick her up and calmly walk her over to where I'm sitting. We finally get called into the room and she was pretty good once we were in there but as soon as I opened the door to leave the room she takes off running. She leaves the doctors office waiting room turns the corner and takes off down the hall. I had to leave the stroller where it was and run after her. She then proceeds to let out a loud screach which she knows drives us nuts.
I'm checking out and the entire time she is talking over the receptionist which was pissing me off so much. We got into the car and I flipped. I told her she needs to spend the rest of the day in her room and when daddy comes home she needs to tell him what she did and then she can eat dinner then must go back to her room.
The next day we went for a walk around the development. She kept running ahead of me when we are near the road, or she would stop in the middle of the sidewalk and say I'm staying here. I don't want to walk anymore. I seriously don't know how to get her to behave when we are out in public or even at home. Please help.
Oh and telling her that if she is good while we are there she will get something (ex. park, ice cream, etc.) doesn't work. On our way to the dr. I told her she will get to go to the park if she is good and she was so bad it was embarrassing.
