I have a four year old son. I keep him in nice clothes,feed him healthy foods, buy him nice toys, My husband and I give him hugs and kisses all of the time. We love him very much. That being said, he's a handful. He talks back, hits,punches and yells at other people all of the time. I've tried reprimanding him,putting him into time out,taking away his favortie toys, canceling special trips to the zoo, the wiggles playstation,etc.,spankings,reward charts,etc. Nothing works. Lately this past year, he opens the door and he leaves without telling anybody. He has done this four times. I keep on buying a lock and putting it higher everytime so that he can't reach it,but he's so tall that when he stands on a toy, he can unlock it. He did this this morning when we were asleep at about six in the morning. He was down the street at the laundromat. I can't stop crying. I hate this. I need help. What do I do? Do I send him to my mom's?Answer Question

First, some kids are just more difficult when it comes to things like this than others. Second, you do not need to send him to your Mom - honestly, there's not much that she can do that you can't do, and if she knows of something that you aren't doing, then she should be telling you, so you know it, too. Finally, look at this site http://nservices.com/door.htm. Scroll down past all the fake alarm window decals and stuff, and you'll see these alarms that you can get for your doors and windows. You put them on the door, you turn them on, then, when the door is opened, it sets off this really loud alarm. It will wake you up so you know your ds is trying to leave, and, frankly, it will scare him and help teach him NOT to do this!
