2 year old is pushing buttons...
Hayley is almost 3, December 1, and has this thing with not listening! or Doing the opposite of what we say.. We tell her to "Not touch the phone" so she looks at with an evil smile and touches the phone while saying "Touch". It drives me crazy! My 4 year old never drove me this far. Any suggestions??
My oldest has Down Syndrome, so she can have both the young toddler attitude and the preteen one. She will do things and say things to test her limits and push buttons. We try redirecting, as in giving her a task to do, asking her to help us with something, or giving her something else she can do instead. If redirecting doesn't work (sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't), we do a time out or take something of hers away. So that she understands her bad actions have consequences.
If redirecting does not work, try a time out or a favorite toy taken away.
