Please no bashing, I have tried everything I can. I've spanked, time-outs, taken toys away, etc. My son is VERY strong-willed and very hyper. I really think he has ADD but he's too young to be diagnosed. He's gotten very mouthy now at 2 1/2 years old and I'm very tired of it. He yells all kinds of stuff at me when he gets mad. He especially doesn't listen when I tell him not to do something BEFORE he does it...like I'll see him going to do it and I'll say, 'No, dont' do that" and he'll just go do it anyway and laugh at me. Most of the time when I tell him no, he either laughs it off or does it anyway. Then he gets punished. But it never gets any better, it's like he never learns and never behaves any better than before. What can I do?? I'm exhausted and I'm so sick of yelling at him :(

Hmm, are our kids comparing notes? They sound like two peas in a pod! Seriously, Sophia does the same things. And it's only since the baby has been born. She definitely wants more mommy time and I understand that. It's just not possible with the way things are right now. If you find the answer let me know, otherwise, I'm really no help. Oh and I just love how she laughs like Chris does when she purposefully does something wrong. She even laughs in my face when I punish her. It really gets under my skin, but nothing works as of yet. Hopefully things will get better, for both of us!
