My son is 3-1/2 and as many are, we are running into battles of listening and respect. He is already strong willed so testing comes with the territory anyway but I am questioning the line of being too strict and not letting him be a child either... We do time outs for back talk and disrespectful words towards us -He gets put in his room for whining fits and throwing his toys or not taking care of his things.. Toys taken after a warning to put them away or not listening.. I don't know.. sometimes I feel scared if we don't allow some sort of back talk or at least an outlet for him to express himself when he's angry, he will find a different way to release those feelings as he gets older in a non productive manner.. My DH says I over think things and we are better to be strict than not.. he does get many chances to be silly and we have so much fun together but I guess I worry what is TOO strict and for what ages.. when he gets upset would having him punch a pillow be a dumb idea?? that's what my sister said I should do for that "boy aggression"
