So I am having major issues in my family right now. I have a son that will be 5 in 3 weeks, and I have an amazing man in my life who I love dearly. My son is having major behavioral issues right now, and it it causing alot of problems with him and my boyfriend. He is constantly ignoring him, and me but mostly him. He is making life so much harder. He recently has been peeing in his pants and he said its to make my boyfriend mad. My boyfriend loves my son and wants a relationship with him, and we are afraid that if they cant find away to get along our relationship may not work, and neither one of us want that to happen. He is rude and disrespectful on purpose. We try to talk to him and explain that you cant behave that way but it keeps on happening. We have tried multiple ways to punish him, we take away toys, tv time, going out to do fun things, time outs, standing in the corner, and spanking. Nothing seems to work. I am at my whits end, I cant take much more. I am so frustrated with my son. I want us to have a happy family to together and I don't know how to make that happen. We dont want to take him off punishment to do fun things together because he has to understand what he has done is wrong. I really need some help and advice. I am going to start my son in therapy but that's not for a few weeks away. Any advice is helpful!
