Discipline problem- HELP!
My 18 month old does not respond AT ALL to any type of discipline or correction. He thinks any kind of discipline is funny. For example, any time he has or finds a drink he dumps the entire thing on the floor. (I do my best to limit his access to spillable drinks, so that’s not the help I’m looking for). He thinks it’s hilarious when I try to discipline him. I have tried a calm conversation with him (we don’t dump our drinks on purpose that makes a big mess, etc.) and a natural consequence (have him help me clean it up). I’ve tried “time-ins” and “take a break” and have even recently resorted to a not isolated time-out (he sits in a chair that faces the rest of the room where he can see me). I do similar things with his other behavior problems- throwing toys, hitting, etc. He just doesn’t seem to respond in any way besides that I’m hilarious for attempting to correct him. HELP PLEASE!!!
