I have tried everything from timeouts to spankings and everything in between. at this moment he has NO toys (they are all boxed in my garage) and he spends his day playing make believe. on the days he listens and has a good day he earns them back then when he doesn't listen I take one away. he's back to no toys tonight and doesn't seem to care. does anyone have any other advice? I'm at my wits end. and yes I do understand he is three and will have his issues. that's fine... he doesn't just have issues... he sees my nephew get away with EVERYTHING. he has no discipline. my son is no longer allowed around him unless I'm there.Answer Question

I have a three and half year old girl and we have done everything also. We can't get anything to work. I am so glad to see that I am not a bad parent because my child refuses to listen to me. The only thing I haven't tried that is listed out here is the money reward. other than that we have tried it all and then some. Her newest thing is fighting with me when I do put her in time out or stand her in the corner. It is so frustrating. I think I will try some of these ideas also.
