Bad behaviour is often an effective way to attract attention of parents.

The conflicting time will probably start at the stage during your child's third year: tears and tantrums often go hand in hand with being two years old.

Phrasing limits in a positive way focuses on what to do, rather than what not to do.

When you offer positive statements, they reinforce for your child what is appropriate, serve as desirable models of communication to imitate, and decrease the likelihood for your child to respond with defensiveness or resistance.

When your child understand the reasons or rationale for limits, she is more likely to comply and abide by them.

Furthermore, teaching your child the "why" of a limit helps her internalize and learn the rules of social living.

For example: "When you put the toys back on the shelf, people can find them easily when they want them."

The golden rule to dealing with bad behaviour is act quickly. You should step in right way and remove the source of trouble - take away the toy that's being fought over, or pick up your child and remove her with a firm NO.

At the same time distract your child's attention with some other activity or toy.

You just have to be consistent and not angry, so that your child gets a clear message that she is never allowed to behave in that way.

Bad behviours are punished but you should also reward your child for good behaviour.

The best reward is your time, attention and love. Praise, a cuddle, a story on your lap, admiring words all these make your child feel good and special.

It is very likely, that your child gets most attention when she behaves badly and least when she behaves nicely.

You should appreciate your child for the behaviour your want, this will encourage her to behave properly.

By appreciating her nice behaviour you will be giving your child a good and useful lesson.

That's it for today.
