I recently acquired a new member to my family. He will be 3 next month.
When ever I need to correct him he gets this glazed look on his face and refuses to awnser me. He will not even nod his head.
He knows he wont get spanked (from what I hear spanking was the preferred method of discipline where he came from). Time out does not seem to be effective. I put him in the corner (not for this) and he cries, but not normal crying, he screams, and screeches "ow" as though he's in pain (he's not).
I dont have anymore background on him, except that his language skills are very poorly developed. (when correcting I make sure to use small words he knows)
I don't know what to do. Any advice?
If it were my mother and I did that to her, she would have grabbed me by the arm swung me in close until I was an inch from her face and as asked me again . This is not my plan, my mother often just lost it with us.
