2 year old playing up

Hi my name is Racheal and i have 2 children, one is 2yrs old and the other is 8 months old, both boys. My question is in relation to my 2 yr old son who is continous to say no and then starts to play up now. i have tried everything e.g putting him in a corner but that doesnt work i just dont know what else to do with him. he makes me upset and angry because he doesnt listen and he just keeps on playing up all the time. can you help me with this please and thank you

Answer: Hi Racheal, Before he says no look at doing and saying lots of positive things with him, Spend more time with him. Change your own mood. Do not use the corner - the approach is not working. See the other replies for more ideas. Betty
