    No iPad, no TV, no toys until she listens.
    Naughty corner or what not if need be.

    Start with that and be consistent.

    It is hard I agree, my kids are very cheeky at times too. And my 3 yr old is a lot worse at 3 than he ever was at 2.

    I'm currently sitting in front of my TV, not allowing them to turn it back on or go to bed until all the toys are packed away

    Your not a bad parent from what I just read, they know how to push our buttons and right moments to do it.

    I use time out (naughty chair) and naughty toy box for any toy thrown or not taken care of. I'm strict because been a single mum I have to be and so yes I'm always bad cop but you can tell he respects me for it because he had boundaries. It does get easier.

    And I also don't listen/ respond until manners are used..
    So for eg 'mum I want drink' gets the response of 'really??' from me, until the word please is included.

    Hth!

    Terrible 2's are a myth 😢 that was a breeze this 3rd year is so hard. I don't want to wish these toddler years away. I want to cherish them while they are still little. This sux. I am crap!

    Ok naughty corner I could try that?

    I've taken things off her before and she doesn't care. She just goes to her million other toys or gadgets😞

    So hard to burn off energy when it's so hot to. Hurry up playgroup gymnastics sports swimming lessons everything come back fast.

    I've just come out of this phase with my DD (4.5) about 6 months ago. She was an absolute terror! A sweetheart but knew how to push my buttons...

    I found sticker charts/rewards worked wonders, and ignoring her when she was behaving badly. If she was touching something she wasn't meant to, rather than repeatedly telling her to stop, I'd silently go over to her and remove the item/remove her and go back to what I was doing. If she did it again, she went to her room. Of course shed start whinging and crying (she's great at emotional manipulation- "Mummy *sob* I just *hic* want a *bigger sob* cuddle") but I would tell her I will come back when she's stopped carrying on and do exactly that. Eventually (as soon as she knew I was serious it was a matter of 2 mins) stop, and I'd go in, explain why she was in there, she'd apologise and come out.

    Also, it does end. She's now a wonderful behaved kid, with the exception of one or two "I said STOP touching that/saying poo/chasing the dog etc. per day!
