The Terrible Three's


My 33 month old has recently begun yelling all of his responses. He gets frustrated very easily and says, “Stop! Stop it, mommy!” and “Goooosh!” "No!" is his favorite word, and now he yells it. When giving him directions (ex. come sit down to eat), he decides to continue doing what he’s doing and yells "NO!" very loudly when asked again. What discipline can I use? Do I put him in time out each and every time he yells or is defiant? How long do I put him in time out? Thank you!
