I have done several posts about this and nothing ever works. I am a fly on the wall. No one in my house listens to me I might as well be speaking a different language. My kids DO NOT listen to me AT ALL. I tell them in a sane matter. I end up screaming in order for them to listen. That is all they hear - their hearing is fine according to docs - I actually had them check becasue they don't listen so much.
Time outs do not work. Screaming is the only thing that works - taking toys away does not work, spanking - nothing. I have to SCREAM. Positive reinforcement worked for a couple of days - now nothing.
I am sooo tired of it. I am ready to check myself in to an asylum so I don't have to deal with it anymore.
This is not an every once in a while deal - IT IS EVERYDAY - MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY.
DH works a lot, so when he is home he is RELALY lenient as he "does not get to see them that often"
I am at my wits end!!! I NEED HELP - PLEASE!!!! anyone with a different idea than what I mentioned above. Thank you!!!
BTW - they are 3 and 5 - recently turned that age.
