My son Haiden he will be three in about a week. He misbehaves constantly. I have done 2min timeouts in the corner of the kitchen but he kept getting up, so timeouts have changed on to our naughty step with a gate so he doesn't go up the stairs and close the door so he doesn't walk away from it and he sits there for 3mins, i then ask him if he is ready to talk and he says yes, and have him apologize to me and the person involved. He says sry to me but it is a fight to get him to say sorry to the person involved. I have taken toys away and he doesn't get them back for a week but that don't help, i have taken toys away from him when he throws things but that doesn't work.
he started swearing at me, having meltdowns in public (which he never did), he has a little brother who is going on 5months and his brother doesnt' get any attention until Haiden goes to bed.
I have also problems getting him to take a nap, he is tierd and exhausted but when i put him down he wont go, he fights his eyes, i have to stay in his room till he falls asleep otherwise there is no nap and a very crabby child at 4pm or 6pm. i have tried leaving him in there but he just gets up and plays. Any help i will take it
