  • I have a 20 month old Daughter that does the same thing. Maybe it's just terrible two's. ?? I've tried everything with mine and nothing seems to help. And it only gets worse when we are in public. And everybody stares at me. And if I spank her then she just cries even louder . And people just look at me like "Oh my God" But if I don't try and stop her from acting like that then they look at me like "She needs to spank her kid , what a brat" ya know? I don't know if there is an answer but I feel your pain!!!

  • I know you may not want to hear this. But some of his behavior problems may not be willful disobedience. He may just be acting his age. So hang in there, and pick your battles. What is dangerous, and what is just annoying. If it is dangerous, try some training. But realize that somethings only time will fix. Good luck and hang in there.

  • I know what you mean! My daughter has stuborness down to an art when it comes to doing things she knows she shouldn't. Maybe you should pick one discipline that you feel comfortable enforcing anywhere/anytime and stick with it, whether it looks like it works or not. Maybe eventually your consistency will win out! Good luck.
