  • Sure they listen......when it comes to going to store, car ride, park, toys.....they hear that a mile a way....but they really listen when I have to tell them 3 times and they ignore me and go to time out corner = ) It stinks.

  • All the time. My daughter seems to never listen. I finally got so fed up that I just stopped yelling at her. Now I just look at her and say very calmly "go to your room" and if she still acts up after that I take her tv away and that usually works. She also hates to stand in a corner with her nose on the wall. My best suggestion is when you are punishing your kid/s, dont threaten them. They learn fast that its just a threat and you wont really follow through. So make sure that you threaten them with something that you will follow through on.

  • Hell, my husband does that sometimes. ;)

    "Honey, when I'm gone please flip the laundry. Honey. Yo. Hey, are you listening?" (Move me in front of the game on the TV) "Helllloooooo."

    "Huh? I'm sorry, what?"

    Then the 9 year old and his sister:
    "Do not make those into water balloons. Did you hear me? Do. Not. Make. Water balloons. WHY are you taking those outside. Ok, get in your room."

    "What did I do?! WE were just going to have fun with water balloons"
