there are 3 friends of mine who have kids aged between 5-10. all of them behave terribly !! kind of like the kids you see on supernanny. it all started when they were all babies and just started crawling. one of the friend is my neighbor so we are at each others' place all the time. so anyways her baby would crawl over to blinds/curtains or decoration pieces on the tables and touch them. even if she would say ''no'' to her kids, ofcourse they would be too young to understand. so everyone would tell her to take it easy as her babies are too little to be trained so early. now they are around 8 years and DO NOT LISTEN AT ALL !!! jumping from the couch, throwing stuff at the tv and just plain old stubborn. even time outs don't work for them. not even taking away things. they start screaming and crying and just throw tantrums whenever she has company at her place. same thing with my other 2 friends who i mentioned in the start of my question.
now my son is 8 months old and he just started crawling.. and yes, he goes straight for the blinds !! lol. i tried a few times to say no to him and move him away from them but he keeps crawling back with this stubborn look on his face. my husband told me to cool down a little bit on the scolding as he's just 8 months. instantly my friend's drama scene played in my mind. so should i start training him at this age or wait for a few years? even at this age he is too stubborn !!! he understands EVERY emotion of ours, but plainly ignores when i try to tell him not to touch anything.. any advices ??
