My 5 year old got a little brother one month ago. he has 2 little sisters too but getting the litte brother changed it all. All of a sudden he is the king of back talking and yelling and just not listening. He will scream at my husband DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO if my husband tells him to knock something off. He does nto dare to do that with me. I am home with the kids all day so they seem to listen to me way more then him.
He also has a problem listening to me to but he will not yell back at me at least.
My son has ADHD and will give him a spanking for whatever he does wrong and 3 min later he is doing it again
He is about to start school and I have no idea how to get this in controll
it has only lasted for the last one month after his brother was born. Before that he was a perfect child.

lol i'll PM u my address and number so u can call on me. My son don't hit anyone EVER. All he does is yell and no one here does that so obviously it's not correct what u say. And a smack on the mouth is a little pat on the mouth, it don't hurt . I know first hand my parents used to do it to me and it worked with me. now if u have a better thing to do why don't u give me a suggestion instead of putting down what I am doing. ??? BTW my sister works in child protective services and knows what is legal and illegal. A tap on the mouth is legal and very very normal to do for back talking. CPS don't scare me lol. I am not hiding anything. I have done it at the store to him and right in front of a cop and the cop actually told me"nice to see a parent that actually disciplines their child when misbehaving"

That is how i discipline my other 2 children as well and it works very well for them, they are extremely well behaved and have never ever got a spanking or anything like that. they are 3 and a half. But with my son it don't work what works with my girls. He needs a different style of parenting. time out get him worse(weird I know) taking toys don't face him. We have emptied his whole room once and he had to win them all back but that did not seem to stop his behavior problems. Thing is he is perfect every where else. At his sitter House that he goes to once a month she can not stop bragging about him. and it only happens when my husband comes home. Sometimes he does not listen during the day and he looses a dollar each time(he is saving money for a game) and that works very well when I am home. But the min hunny gets home he goes crazy..
