Hi Jessica

Kelly is right, this sounds like very normal behavior for a 2 year old. Apart from behavior management techniques of planned ignoring for minor misbehavior or the use of time-out for more serious misbehavior, I would suggest you try to ensure she has adequate sleep and nutrition. Misbehavior is far more likely to occur when a child is overtired or hungry. Providing food and naps at regular intervals throughout the day to restore her energy levels may help.
