I went out of town this weekend, and when i got back, my 18 month old son has changed overnight. He went from a well mannered little boy to an absolute terror overnight! He went listen and when i try to punish him (talking sternly, putting him in a corner, etc.) he laughs. Even the most simple things, like putting on his shoes, has turned into an ordeal that ends in a fit. I understand positive reinforcement is more effective than punishment, so i try to focus on that, but when he never listens, what is there to reinforce? Any advice? Or better yet, does anyone have any recommendations on good parenting book???
