Has anyone read the book called "no bad kids: toddler discipline without shame"? I feel like I need more of a consistent discipline strategy. When my 2yo is doing something she shouldn't, I count to 3 and mostly she stops doing it but if she doesn't, I don't know what the next step should be! So I was wondering if anyone thinks this book has good strategies? I also need something that I can easily explain to my parents as they look after her twice a week. Looking forward to your reviews :-)

I wish I knew what the next step was after 3, usually it's yell like a mad woman and threatening to throw all the Easter chocolate in the bin.

I haven't actually read the book you're talking about so I'm not sure if this will help at all, but we loosely follow 1,2,3 magic but don't always do a 'time out'. I will usually tell the offending child- 'If I get to 3 this will happen' and give them a natural consequence for their behavior. Eg 'if I get to 3 before you're out of the bath you are going to lose a story' or 'if you don't stop fighting over the toy by the time I get to 3 it's going on top of the fridge' any physical violence is a 'straight 3' and they have to go and sit on my bed with me for as many minutes as they are old. No playing or talking just sitting. They also get this sort of time out if they're having a tantrum and can't pull themselves together. Generally a stint in time out calms them down.
