I'm hoping to get advice on how to have a structured discipline routine that works. My toddler is beginning to become defiant. Has even begun to hit in the height of frustration. Now, I'm not a smacker and don't believe that hitting the toddler will teach that hitting is not on.
Ive tried time out but it is hard to be consistent as we have 2 homes already (here and dads) and 2 daycares as well. On top of the fact that until very recently there have been a lot of changes (separated 7 months ago, moved to my mums, started our current custody arrangement, I studied FT and the. Began work and moved houses in to a house with a housemate (who is wonderful and the toddler adores).
Now that we are stable, I'm in steady work and we won't be moving for a long time, I want to get a serious routine down pat with not only eating meals but discipline.
Im hoping someone may have some tips to share that the child understood and that worked.
