  • My kids are super crazy too, when I don't run them under a routine. Like on weekends and holidays- they are off the wall. But since my oldest has started school this year, I get both my kids up at 7am and get them in bed by 8pm and they tend to be a lot calmer with organized schedule during the day. That works for me though, but every kid is different. I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Good luck :)

  • Time outs, taking toys away, taking tv away, spanking, umm....the list can go on and on, don't let them say no!

  • I wish I knew but I have a 5 year old girl like this and her teachers and pediatrician say she's fine (despite hitting and spitting etc at school even).

  • my daughter got completly out of control a few years ago. i took everything out of her room finally and made her help me carry it to the dumpster! of course after she went to sleap i got it all out and hid it in my closet, and then told her i would start buying one of her toys back once a week if she was good all week. it took her six months to get all her stuff back and she has been pretty well behaved for the most part since.

    Actually there is when one of the child's behaviors is hitting....not to mention not even reads or believes in the bible.

  • I have 4 boys ages 9,8,5,&3. They are a riot. I use 123 Magic and it works well. You just have 2 stick it and not give into the manipulative behaviors (whining, martyr, bargaining, etc. ) Goood luck =)
