Ive been babysitting a 4yo for a while & he has limited vocab/communication skills (IDK why). He is getting really bad at telling me NO, Stop, Don't.... anytime I tell him anything.
Back away from the TV-"No"... Stop throwing- "no- stop"... Go to the room to play "No i dont wanna play"... Dont take her toy "No my toy!"....
Any toy my kid has he wants. I cant distract him with another toy. and when she does give it to him & go to another toy. He wants that toy.
If my kid(3.5) tries to pretend (im a princes) "NO you girl! No princess".
1yr of him getting in trouble over throwing & he still does it.
He screams if he does not get his way. He will scream for 15min straight sometimes!
IDK what to do. My dd is younger & has never acted this way at all..
I can talk to my dd, have conversations & explain stuff to her.. He cant do that at all.

I agree...every time "no" flies out of his mouth, its time out for him. If this doesn't help, you may want to talk to the mom...something more could be going on.

I think it's your business if you are a caregiver. That's sad that the mom doesn't see it that way. All she's doing in the process is hurting her child. I don't have any advice there other than to keep pushing the issue...it IS your business if you have a hand in raising him.
