My kids are 4 and 6. I'm a single mother and don't get much help from their dad and no one else wants to deal with them, because of how they act.
My mornings are crazy I try it get then both around to get my oldest to school well my youngest "doesn't want to go" so he sits there and won't get dressed or shoes on etc then all day long my youngest is always whining or demanding stuff or being a cling on..litterly I can't do anything without him pretty much glued to me and i try to give him some coloring books or something to do so I can clean but nothing works. Then I pick my daughter up from school and within 5 min their pullin on each other's clothes n fighting in back seat or yelling I'm hungry and I say wait till we get home thorn I get screamed at or they whine and say I want it now then it's an argue over supper they say what they want I make it and when it gets put infront of them they scream and say they wanted the other thing then I try to get them to pick up their toys and they stare at me or say I don't want to or no you do it then it comes time for bed which is the hardest part of the day. I can't get the to stay in their own beds they get up saying...hungry thirsty don't like my bed scared of wind rain tummy hurts basically any excuse they've said it
It's always the same thing every day. I've tried every thing I can thing of to get them to listen....take toys away, throw toys away, asking nicely, saying if you clean up I'll let you watch some tv, don't believe in spanking but did try once with one swat but they laughed at me, corner or timeout don't work they spend their time screaming as loud as possible at me and I don't like to yell but that don't work either
I never give into their demands you would think after a few times of asking and not getting they would stop....nope not mine they get louder and even more demanding
Idk what to do anymore I didn't figure my kids would not listen to me this bad till teen years
Anyone else have kids like this?
