How do I get my 2 year old son to listen and do as he is told?

My 2 year old Toddler son will not listen and do what I tell him too. What can I do to get my 2 year old boy to do as he is told and not defy me?

A lot of toddlers at 2 years old will start defying you and throwing tantrums. Have you ever heard of the terrible twos? lol

But if he doesn't listen and do what he is told you should put him in the corner and have him stand there for a couple minutes.

If putting him in timeout doesn't work then you will have to resort to spanking him. Contrary to what some believe spanking if done properly is not abuse.

I was spanked as a child when I wouldn't behave and I don't consider that my parents were abusing me.

He may get mad at you but he will still love you even if he tells you he hates you for spanking him when he needs it.
