What is the best way to deal with behavior problems in toddlers?

My toddlers are normal, I just need to know how to deal with them.

Have them sit quietly in time-out. This time is 2-3 minutes for toddlers. Afterward, explain why you gave the time-out. Hug them and let them know they are still loved.

Toddlers thrive on structure, and consistency is the key. When you say no, you should give one warning, then they're put into time-out, one minute for each year of age.

Try punishing them in some way and if that doesn't work ignore there behavior. A lot of times toddlers will do things just to try to get a reaction.

Always mean what you say. If they do something wrong and you threaten to punish them, if they do it again, follow through with it. Don't back down. Make sure they understand why they're in trouble and what will happen if its done again.
