my 3 year old son just plain out doesn't listen to me and could care less if he got hurt or not. I have done' time outs, early bed times, taken toys away, reward system for good and positive behavior, i have spanked him, slapped his mouth when bad words come out of his mouth, slap his hand if he is going to touch something that he knows will hurt him or break. He just keeps doing it.
Like here are some examples.
One day i told him to stay next to me while i get his 7month old brother out of the cart to put him in the van. I kept my eye on my 3 year old as he was saying i am going to run mommy. I said no ur not and as i proceeded to grab him and put him in the cart, he ran away and almost got hit by a semi truck. I then got him, told him u could of gotten hit by that truck, and i got home with my sons, put my 3 year old and time out and took his new toy away. All day long he kept asking for it, and i said no, so he got more mad at me and said i hate u, u are mean mommy, and proceed to throw a car at my head. I then put him in time out and shut the toys down with a gate and turned off his TV. After time out he apologizes to me, but still manages to knock down the gate, turn the TV on. I told him i said u can't not watch or play with your toys because of ur bad behavior. He gets mad kicks me, and slaps me. That is just in one day.
He has jumped on his 7month old brothers back, called him a retard (which he is not mentally challenged). I have spanked him for jumping on his 7month old brothers back, and sat him in time out for 3mins. He just keeps doing it. I don't give him any attention either when he is doing it.
Last example there is construction on our road they are replacing water and sewer manes and sidewalks and the road. Well by the new shut off valve there is a deep hole next to it. He insists that he needs to get a look. I told him numerous times to get away from there so he doesn't fall through. As i go get him, he runs away from it. I go back to what i am doing playing with my 7month old outside, he goes back and gets closer. I finally get a hold of him, and i take him inside and leave him in a pack and play while i tell him when he is ready to listen outside he may come back. After 3mins of letting him in the pack and play he says he is ready to listen to me. I believe him but no sooner he goes back to square one.
I am afraid he will get kicked out of his preschool this year because of his behavior or i will be constantly getting bad reports or phone calls.
He is very spoiled, my mom gives into him when he has temper tantrums, but she is gotten a lot better and when my son spits at me she jumps to it and says to him u be nice to mommy or grandma will spank. She has spanked him. My mother in Law thinks he is just mr perfect, and lets him get away with spitting at me or his dad, but yet she can't watch him or his brother for an hr for me. My husband says i am to hard on him.
When should i buckle down on him, and is this a typical 3 year old or is he out of control.
May i add i give him a lot more positive attention. i read to him, play games with him, watch movies with him, play ball with him, while his father is at work doing his job, but when daddy comes home just goes on the computer 0r game and just ignore him.
