I am just not comfortable using the naughty corner with 2 year old DS. He's too young for it probably, and plus since i have been doing it a little lately i feel its made him play up more.
My mother was on to me constantly that I should be using it with him as it gives us 'both time out'
SO after watching some Supernanny's I decided to give it a shot.
Then yesterday when she came over, I was in the middle of doing the naughty corner with him after he grabbed a glass off the table, refused to give it back and threw it against the wall - smashing it everywhere. My mother walks in and picks him up and hugs him, telling him "it's alright darling grandma is here now" After she was done comforting him, she put him down and told me I can finish now Grandma made him feel better.
To me that has ruined it for me now as now he will see me as a big bully when i do it so i want to wipe the whole thing and do something else when he has been especially naughty. I am feeling stressed and couldn't sleep last night thinking about it (pregnancy hormones probably playing a part there)
What do you do for your 2 year old's when they have played up if you don't use the naughty corner?
I am also contemplating telling my other how p!ssed off I am about her interference and how it's ruined the whole concept for me now. GRRR!! But i wont make this thread about her. I should have spoken up at the time, it really only seemed to sink in what happened after it was done with.
Anyways any tips would be great.
