i have two boys ages 3 years and 9months.
My 3 year old is a tester beyond belief and no matter how many times you tell him no on something he will keep testing your boundaries until you crack and just say fine. But i have tried timeouts with him in 3 different spots for bad behavior and he just keeps getting up or testing me. I have tried timeouts in the living room in the corner on a chair and turned the TV off for his timeout but that didn't work because he just kept getting up. I then tried it in the kitchen next to the Microwave but he thought it would be cool to get up and turn the microwave on. SO my last spot i tried was on the stairs and close the door so he couldn't see anything, well he just kept kicking the door and thought it was funny. I know your not suppose to spank but i do it and it seems to be the only thing to be working.
My 9month old i have to tell NO alot to. No matter how many time i redirect him he just goes back in the same thing i just redirected it from.
what are ways to punish a 3 year old..
