My DS for the most part is a silly, lovable child. He still hates his carseat. No matter what I do, toys I give, treats I put in the cup. But that is another story for another day. He has now started screaming and telling me, "I don't want to". I know that some of the behavior is regular two year old testing limits, and some of it is learned form daycare. He has a kid in his class that is a gem (I saw him in action one day when I was talking to the teacher). Anyway, I have tried the diversion technique, and the telling him that it is not nice to scream at moma, and all that, but when do you start to set limits. I know that some people have started using time outs, but I don't know if DS understands the concept of being in trouble and what he is suppose to learn from that. I say that, because once I say, "that is not nice, tell moma sorry" He does, but then he does it again. I am not big on spanking, but I will if he is doing something that will hurt himself, but I just wanted to get your take on the discipline issue. I feel like I am walking on an emotional mine field with him sometimes. You never know what will set him off into a meltdown. God, please let this phase pass.
