My 6yo stepson is generally a very good boy, but lately he's started rolling his eyes, pouting, stomping up the stairs, etc. when he has to do something he doesn't want to. Sometimes he also "threatens" us, saying things like "fine. if I have to clean my room I won't come back down" or " Fine. If I can't play my Wii I'm not going to do anything".... Honestly I find it kind of funny but I don't want him displaying this behavior at school or with anyone else so what do you all do about this kind of behavior? I've read ignorning it is one way to deal, and I do that sometimes but I want him to know that the behavior isn't going to get him what he wants and I don't feel like having that conversation everytime...is a timeout appropriate or does anyone have a better idea?! thanks!Answer Question
