Are you a mom?
If so, you can ask real moms your parenting questions and get answers in minutes!
so the past several months have been an extremely hard time for my family and myself
discipline has gone by the way side and i'm basically screwed up, i'll admit it.
I have three year old twin boys, one of which runs the show.
I'm a single mom, I'm in school full time and am about to start a part time job.
I'm not sure I need to go into detail about my boys but in a nutshell they (mostly Tyler) run the show, get what they want when they want it etc. they're at my parents house a lot of the time because my parents help me out A LOT so i'm able to stay in school. i know my mom would be half on board with changing things up to get control back from the three year olds but i know she wont be consistant
however i'm still willing to try, so i have control at least at our house
i know I need to be consistant, I know i need to convey to my boys that I"M in control, not them. but I really don't know where to start.
I've tried a reward chart but the idea of how they earn their sticker has been so broad that its not been consistant.
ive considered taking away all of their toys and giving them a small box of thinsg to play with and making them earn stickers so at the end of the day they can have one toy back... or something like that?
I feel like i need a concrete plan to follow ... i need guidance i need a starting point...
what should i do?
what worked for you?
things have to change because I want my boys to be happy and understand boundaries i dont want them to grow up to be brats because they're very very sweet, and they deserve better
