We have a two and a half year old. Most of the time she is good. When I,(dad) am alone with her she is good and wants me to be with her, and doesn`t really throw any fits. When my wife comes home or we are together, it's like my daughter hates me. She doesn't listen when I need to discipline her

Consistent Parenting

Toddlers may not have the words to express it, but they can understand differences in parenting styles and can even begin manipulate their parents' behavior to get what they want. It is very important for parents to talk (away from their toddler) to decide on rules, consequences, and their response to tantrums. The more that parents can agree on similar reactions, even using similar words, the more the child will understand and respond appropriately to discipline.
