My eldest daugther, now in college and doing great is not the problem. Her two brothers, one in high school and the other in elementary school are. Ages 16 and 6. My sons do not hear me unless I scream at them. They don't seem to ever engage me unless I talk to them first.
My little one loves to watch tv and runs around the house playing with his toys. Everything becomes a shooting apparatus, toothbrush, pencil, hanger. But when it comes time to doing his homework, you'd think I was beating the child. He falls to the floor and start hollering. I give him plenty of advance countdowns but that still doesn't work. My eldest, loves his laptop and WII games which I've limited to only the weekend. I'm wondering if I've lost my parenting skills cause it seems like all I ever do is scream at them and when I try to actually have a conversation with them it's painful. The first was ok, these two are giving me a complex.
