I am having great difficulty employing positive discipline techniques with my 2 year old. I have read "Discipline without Distress" and am working on "How to talk to kids will listen..." and really love their suggestions for acknowledging feelings and working through emotional situations. But, they seem more geared for kids pre-school aged. Our struggle now is the ability for me to inspire some cooperation. There are certain things DS just needs to comply with (for physical safety reasons or to avoid damaging property/home) and he refuses to take me seriously! He giggles when I sternly ask him to stop and since he love to play chase, if I make a move to catch him and physically stop him, he gets the biggest kick out of it. He is SO smart and understands things very well, so I know the concept is not beyond him. So, looking for some tips on helping my son to understand that there are some things I really mean business on and are not negotiable. If I can lay the groundwork there, then I know less serious things will fall into place. HELP!!!
