rowan will be 5 this summer; and i am having a terrible time tryin to figure out what to do with him. he has no impulse control. its like he doesnt understand cause and effect... action and reaction... he will recite the rules to me (so i KNOW he knows them) but within 5 mins, he is doing exactly what he isnt supposed to do.
and the lying is awful... not just "my brother did it" type of stuff... he will inten tionaly do something wrong, and come up to me and say "mommy, i didnt get into the refridgerator"... wtf is that about! i have tried spanking; i have tried the love and logic approach of talking to him; explaining that his actions caused a consequence; timeout; taking things away; withholding activities, or good things... nothing is helping! he just does whatever he wants...
my question is; should i get him in to see a behavioural therapist or is this somehow normal behavior??
You do know kids test their parents. To see how much they can get away with. Stop changing the way you discipline. Pick one way and stick to it.
