I don't agree 100%
a 2 year old can understand "we don't do that" or "do you want time out?" & act accordingly. Age 2 is when they push your limits, knowingly doing things they shouldn't do in order to see your reaction.

Thanks for the help!
This makes so much sense, but I just couldn't think of it on my own. Unfortunately, I am an impatient person and I get frustrated with my son and then with myself for my reactions to his behavior. I think this advice will help me a great deal. Thanks!

I don't find this to be true
While it is undoubtedly better to give more positive feedback than negative, I don't find it true that 2-year-olds cannot be taught the difference between positive and negative reactions. My 26-month-old daughter understands quite clearly what things she is not supposed to do, and she knows and can deal with the appropriate consequences. I believe that if you don't try to teach a 2-year-old the difference between acceptable and non-acceptable behavior in some way, you will end up with a 3-year-old who knows no boundaries. Loving discipline is appropriate from a very young age and is wonderful for children.
