My 3 yr old was diagnosed with PDD-NOS. He refuses to listen to me or do anything I ask. Ive tried timeout, redirecting, etc nothing is working.Answer Question
When you have a special needs child it makes learning parenting skills so important. Think of having a toolbox or repertoir of skills. Some skills work in some situations and some in others. There are some generalizations. Punishment is the least effective form of parenting, authoritative parenting is the most effective. You can read more by searching on google. To learn parenting skills it may take reading, support groups, classes, conferences, therapy, and/or having a mentor. Love & Limits by Elizabeth Crary is a good first book and she has a web site called star parenting.
