My nephew used to do things like that. So when he did I would tell him if you do it again you will go to timeout. Then I put him there no matter how much he screamed for the amount of time set. I just moved anything breakable or that he could potentially hurt himself on. If he got up I'd put him back. After about a week, he rarely ran around and broke things.

I can't imagine her staying in time out .

Monkey Ball!  (Like your pic)  Sorry, lol...anyway...

I don't have much advice for you though.  Try a time out or take away toys.

Do you think she will understand that ?

Been there. I used to put my ds in his playpen for a quick timeout (1 to 2 mins) when he started with that behavior. Eventually he understood, but I'll admit, it takes a long time.

I really think you should just let her get away with it. Baby her. Pamper her. Give in to her every desire and whim. It's sure to work. She'll be a lovely little lady. Just keep doing what you're doing.

My nephew would kick and scream but I wouldn't engage him, just put him back. He quickly realized that if he did what I said not to that he would go to timeout for the time set. I am so glad we did with him, because if he had continued with his behavior it would be a lot harder to make him stay in timeout. We'd just put him in the timeout spot, and kept putting him back. He must have gotten up 25 times at one timeout but we just kept doing it and the next timeout he just sat there.
