My son will be 4 in July, he's a very good child('most' of the time), he's very sociable, educated ('please', 'excuse me', 'thank you', etc. are no problems), he's very helpful (loves to help me around the house)and every time he sees somebody hurt, or in a bad mood, he quickly asks 'are you ok?' (mommy are you ok? papa are you ok? :D ) - all the time, at times it even gets annoying, but not in a bad way :) he's very cute. BUT, I do have problems with him too, first: he almost never wants to share, not with me, not with my husband, not with his friends. And also, another problem is that gets so defiant sometimes, that I find myself not being able to control him. And most of the times he does that in public, where he knows that I won't punish him. He listens to my husband so well, but doesn't really listen to me, which probably is my fault. And another problem is that he wets the bed at night, and it gets so frustrating. I don't punish him for that at all, but I have tried so many things (waking him up during the night ans sending him to pee, making him take the sheets off his bed and load them in the washer, giving a little guilt-trip, like "oh no, mommy has to laundry again, and mommy is so tired") but I feel like there has to be another way, I just haven't found it yet. Any advice, on how to deal with him? Maybe somebody has the same problems as me and knows how to deal with them?Answer Question
