Naughty spot for 2 year old

Do you think the naughty spot works for a child who would be just turning 2. If not what are your steps and what do you use to control your child tantrums/wrong doings.

I think it works if you do it immediately and every time they do something wrong. So they learn that they get punished. But if you only do it once in awhile its not going to work.

personally I think 2 is too young for them (at least my daughter) to understand that they are supposed to stay there in that spot, my daughter is almost 2 & still in a crib, so I put her in her bed for 2 min when she is throwing a fit, she always calms down before the 2min are up & when it is time i go get her, tell her what she did wrong (even tho she might not understand yet completely) & she gives me a kiss & she's done

2 is the perfect time to start doing time outs. You do a minute per age. Make sure you stay consistant with it or else it won't work

When my child is throwing tantrums I put him in his room until he calms down. I use the naughty step.
