Hello ladies, I'm back to being able to post again. I've tried to keep up with at least reading everything that's been going on, but with school I never have time to actually write anything.
Anyway, here's the dilemma at our house: time outs. Isabella is very strong willed (to say the least), she fights us on every single thing. I know part of it is this lovely age she's in, but some of it is just her personality. She's been this way since before she was born, quick to temper and quick to laugh. But when I tell her she cannot sit in the freezer and it's time to close the door, DD refuses to look me in the eye or heck even acknowledge that I'm talking, but as soon as I pull her away to redirect her it's full on WAR!!! Kicking, screaming, limp body, etc., etc., etc.......And then she's sitting in the hall in time out bawling for the who knows how many times that day. We have to discipline somehow, I'm not going to walk on eggshells around a two year old b/c I'm afraid of a tantrum.
My question is: can you really time out too much? I can't say it's not working, she sometimes does seem to think about it when I get down on her level and remind her that we cannot do (insert a loooong list), but then in about half a second she just goes for it anyway.
I'm hoping that me being off from school for the next three weeks can make a big difference in the behavior. I'm also scared that it won't.
