I was wondering what other people do to discipline their children. We used the naughty mat then moved to the naughty corner for our 2 year old. He is not a bad child but at the moment he won’t stop throwing all of his toys and putting him in the corner doesn’t seem to do nothing any more he just comes away smiling. Any other suggestions and any tips on how to discipline a 2 year old?

  • I hope you have found an answer since posting this question. If not, I would suggest action appropriate dicipline. If he throws his toys, he loses them for ten minutes.

  • Have you worked out a way on disciplining your 2 year old yet?

  • You can also try putting him in his room and shutting the door

  • When he goes to the naughty corner are you totally ignoring him?? And is it away from what is going on with the rest of the family??

  • We tried the naughty chair.
    It hard to get a 2 year old to stay put.
    Maybe take a toy away..

  • it’s my son exactly, i thought it was bad at 2, he is almost 4 now and absolute terror. i put him in his room for a time out, but it doesn’t do much, so i started taking his toys away every time he is nasty, i get better results but still far from ideal
