Help! I dont know what to do....

I really do not know what to do here. My son is spoiled rotten and I dont know what to do.

Here's the situation. I live with my family and they let him get away with everything. Whatever he wants its his. He throws a fit i.e. screaming throwing things, just give him what he wants to get him to stop screaming. "Its not about justice its about peace and quiet" is the way my mom views things. I try my hardest to discipline him but to my family, time outs are torture, spanking is abuse for a three year old and so on and so forth. I try to talk to my mom about it but she doesn't listen. Im really at my wits end here. Also if i tell him no she overwrites it and its a yes. I dont want him to be spoiled

  • You need to get out and into a place of your own. The older he gets the worse he's going to be.

  • We were spanked and had privileges and belongings were takin away.
    I tell her that hes spoiled and it needs to be corrected now before its gets worse but shes insists that theres no such thing as a spoiled three year old.
