My 3yr (will be 4 in Nov) has developed a very strong personality, which I know he gets from me. And I see a problem with Authority already. Although he has been through a dramatic change these last few month, converting to reg kid to a army son and his dad gone for 6months, But I am not sure how else to handle this.
I can not spank the kid, all this instigates is hitting when he is upset. How can i say, no you dont hit, but yet I spank him! Its just .. whats the word.. hypocryticall, and others may say "Because I am mom" but I just hate that approach that because I am mom i can disobey the rules I put forward.. So I have been using the time outs, which he does hate, but still doesnt change his behavior...Now he just talks back, not with words he is still behind a little verbally, but with squaks... Anyone have some suggestions?
