yep I think dd thought her name was no no for the longest. Try redirection that helps. Also is your house babyproofed...he can play freely that way or get a fence enclosure thingy...that helps too.

I agree. My dd just turned 3 and my ds is 2 and I am constantly telling them no. I don't know that it stops till they are well... I don't think it stops lol.

we just moved in so not yet. our house is also pretty open so it'll be hard but we're gonna figure it out.

my dd is 18 .5 months and i keep telling her no. My house is as babyproof as i can really get it. The problem is she likes to take my stuff and run or get in the dirry close. if i leave the bathroom door open she is in there. I cant even tell you all the things she ifgures out to do. She has been doing it to me all day and when I say no she grabs it and runs. I hate to say it but she is a brat...

Yep that sounds about right. I still am constantly telling my 19 month old son "no" constantly. Once they figure out something they're always wanting to do it. I agree with the person who said redirection. When he's doing something wrong tell him no but then get his attention with something else. It usually works. And other thing, be consistent.

Oh yea. No becomes a common word. I try to use words other than no and that works.

Ok, how do I put this..duh!! Hes 11 months old, hes a baby. Of corse you have to tell him a million times. THATS children for ya..try removing the items he cant touch, or getting his attention with something else to distract him from what he should not be doing. And learn patience, hes young and you will be telling him no probably the rest of his life, get used to it.
