He's seen Layla go to time out, so he heads there sometimes after I fuss at him. It's pretty funny. Honestly, I don't know what to do with him. He's past the just redirecting stage, but time outs can only be on his terms otherwise he won't stay there.
I think once he's two, he'll get it more.
I also know I need to be more consistent with him. Tim says I'm too soft on him, which is probably true. He just melts my heart, especially when he pouts & folds his arms or when he says, "peeeese!"
Sorry, I got distracted, but yeah pretty much no discipline yet.
I've started doing time outs over the past couple months as it is the only thing that seems to 'stop' the behavior for any length of time. Redirection works at times. If I just tell him NO he may or may not stop but doesn't usually stop for long.
Mostly just redirection. If he's having multiple crazy tantrums, we do a sort of time out- we him in his crib until he calms down. Usually a few minutes by himself with a book or a toy in his crib will chill him out enough that the tantrums stop for a bit.
She's honestly good most of the time all I usually have to do is say "no no" an she corrects herself.
She's gotten a time out a few times when she wouldn't stop hanging on me in front of the stove. while I was making dinner. I live in fear of tripping over one of them and dumping boiling water or something on them so dinner time is horrible here.
My 5 yr old though .....ugh. There is no discipline for him. Nothing works.
