Try using reward charts… toddlers respond well to them even if they stick their own stickers etc to it… i cant offer anything in experience as im only on my second and im dealing with a jealous 9, almost 10year old :)
From 2-5yo I spank. One good open handed pop to the bum is like a reset button. Most of the time, time outs work but there are times when you need to lay down the law. If it's a crying fit I usually say cry babies go to their room and cry, walk them in by their hand and say you can come out when you're done crying. Screaming, hitting, and hysteria gets them a spanking. Everything else can be managed with a stern voice and time out. when they come out I always ask ok why did you get sent to the corner so they have to say what rule they broke. Make a chart with your 5 most important rules anything more than 5 is too much.
