Ds is 22 months, And he's starting to drive me CARZY!
He doesn't listen, acts like i'm talking to some one else, but that's not the issue, the main issue is him jumping on our bed, I tell him to stop, he just carries on like I'd not even said anything, So I tell him to stop, He carries on, "DS sit down" nope, carries on jumping "will you SIT DOWN"
He literally waits until i'm shouting before he takes notice, im tird of it, I don't want to be a shouting mom, but really? He is driving me crazy!
Well, today, he got a tap on the butt, stopped him instantly,
I may have risked looking like I don't know what I'm doing, maybe I don't but what parent goes into parenthood knowing what to do? I grew up in a home where my mother would hit us with belts, chase us around the dining room table yelling she was going to kill us, would drag us up the stairs by our hair. So, as an adult now, even i'm finding the boundaries on how to discipline my own child. I don't want to go too far, and really, I wouldn't usually spank for not listening, but, as I have found out today, it works for him, and I don't feel like I'm going too far
So for the people that judge, thinking that everyone knows how to discipline, well, no,they don't, I am literally learning as I go, I aim to bring up a well educated young man, so thank you to this poster and the other replies that didn't judge and actually lended help ful advice.
