My 5yr old son acts rediculous and out of control when we have company or go to someones home, I don't know what to do! We've talked to him before hand about it, he's been sent to his room when we've had company, I don't know what to do to get him to just act normal when he's around company!!! Help!

  • I'm guess you don't spank? That's what I'd do, since he is not responding to anything else.

  • And yes we've tried spanking too! Don't like too! But that doesn't work either!!

  • Sounds like he's craving attention. Perhaps including him under certain rules might help?

  • Have you tried involving your son in conversations when you have company? Just something like ever so often asking him what he thinks or something like that. It could be that he feels left out , also avoid talking about him with your guests if he can hear, as that will make him angry.
