Hi there and welcome to the group!  IMO, the best thing for 2 yr olds are time outs and also just redirecting when the are getting into something or doing something they shouldn't be doing.  I used to work at a daycare and redirecting was a big part of our curriculum.

Hi! Welcome to the group!!

For your daughter, try and focus her attention on something else. Let her know what she CAN do.

Welcome!

2 year olds are tough.  Whatever you do try you need to stick with it even if it doesn't work right away.  Consistancy is key.

Welcome to the group!

We're happy to have you here.

Our preferred method was timeouts since they really disliked sitting in the corner for 2 minutes (1 minute for every year of age), and they'd behave well to avoid going into the corner again.

Whatever you do, though, be consistent and that will help her learn the rules faster and try your patience less.

Good luck!

fingers crossed

 Welcome to the group!!  I have a toddler and I find that the best way to deal with bad behavior is by re-directing, giving options, or ignoring the fussing.  It's not always easy, some days I wonder who is running the house, me or my toddler.  Good luck!!
