Hi, your description sounds like normal 2 year old behavior. I like to use the 1-2-3 method with my 2 year old. I tell him that if I reach 3 he will be in time out/have something he wants taken (like watching his show for the afternoon, etc.) A child that has turned 2 may not be ready for a time out but they do want their treat or special activity. There are three key components to successful parenting behavior - keeping calm is the first and most important (saying it matter of factly and not yelling, crying, etc). The second is providing consequences and the third is following through even if it inconvenient to do so - like leaving the grocery store when your toddler is having a meltdown. You still need the groceries but teaching them consequences ("if you don't get up from the floor when I get to three we are leaving. 1-2-3") will prove much more useful down the line. Do you have any questions?
