How do you discipline a toddler?

 I haven't had to do a whole lot of disciplining my daughter to this point, as it was just super easy to redirect her attention away from something bad and towards something good, but now, well, she's definitely almost 2, lol.

How do you discipline a toddler? Are time-outs effective at this young age?

Consistency is key.   If you start time outs then you need to be firm about them and not give up if she does leave the time out area.   You only do one minute per age so 2 minutes at most.

Redirection and time outs works great for us started with adding time out at about 20months if redirestion didn't work good luck
