How long has it been since your DH deployed?
They may be having a hard time adjusting. Do you live on post? If you do live on post see what free services are available for deployed children.

 You can't  " make " them listen. Just be firm and consistant 100% of the time.  Try taking away some of his favorite toys. You have a lot on your hands, good luck.

Try to put his diaper on backwards, or if you see him taking it off put him on the potty, if he wants to go in something other than his diaper let him know he has to sit on the potty till he is ready for his diaper back on.

And I would keep doing the same punishment each time he does soemthing wrong, don't try different things everytime, it will just confuse him.

Put overalls on him! We tried everything w/ our oldest yrs ago and overalls were the only thing to keep the diaper on! :)

 My youngest hated overalls, I duct taped his diaper on, it worked.

THIS! you can also put duct tape on his diaper over the tabs and you can make sure to keep clothes on him... as far as your daughter i kind of let my ds go with the do and learn method with things that i KNOW he won't get seriously hurt on! like earlier i had tried and tried to keep him from climbing and he knows the consequences are that he falls but he kept on.... finally i had enough and let him climb and he fell and hit his mouth! that will keep him off for a few days. Don't get me wrong it breaks my heart and I am right there for him to run to when he gets hurt but he is the type of kiddo that has to learn from experience! good luck mama and keep your head up! things will work out~

thanks guys and my hubbys been gone for 2 weeks. and ive tried the ducktape it workd for awhile but then he started to just pull it down till it came off. I dont try things every time but i have changedit over the last 6months to everything i said ive tried. my husband can say something and my son would listen but when i say something he jsut smiles and does it some more. ugh i just needed to ask and get some encouragement about wat i am doing. ireally needed the advice ladys. i love this website so much it helps me out so much. anyways ill try the things u guys have posted but i might be back on for some more help. oh and no i dont live on base i live off about 30mins away. and i do let them just learn cuz they are so crazy like that no matter how many times i say dont get on that ul fall and get hurt they keep doing it and then they fall and dont do it for a day. lol. anyways thanks again ladys
