I have 4 kids. My daughter is 9 and my three boys are 6, almost 4 and almost 3. In general, they are wonderful, helpful and polite children, but here lately I am seeing a lot more untoward behavior such as:
My daughter ignores me when I tell her to do something. She says "okay" but will continue with whatever she is doing and I end up yelling at her to do it...NOT good. I hate to yell.
My 6 year old son whines about EVERYTHING. If I say it's time to come inside, he will pretty much collapse into a "pile of emotion"...literally, on the floor, and ask me 60 different versions of "Why?" If he wants something and I won't get it or do it. he does the same thing. (Btw, I try time out and it is a struggle just to get him to walk to his room. He is constantly asking and begging and pleading for whatever it is he wanted AND to not go to his room.)
The youngest two fight a lot and scream at each other all day long. Suggestions?
