my last nerve has been shot. me and my s/o have guardianship over his three yr old nephew. his mom is in rehab and dad is in jail. we have had him for about a month and during the day im left alone with him while s/o is at work. he is a complete savage. and i do mean savage. his parents have taught him nothing. im trying my best to help this kid and get him somewhat domesticated before the baby gets here(im 36 weeks pregnant).ive started trying to potty train but it is so hard. i have two daughters they are 6 and 7 and are very well mannered and calm. this kid is breaking me! he just took off his underpants....walked in my room....pissed all over my bed....pissed all over my dog and all over my floor as im watching him and telling him to go get on the potty. he doesnt listen. at all. time out doesnt work. he shits in the middle of the floor. he grabs milk, Coffee creamer and any other liquids out of the refrigerator and just dumps them out on the floor. he hides the butter and whatever else he can get his hands on. i really dont know what to do. im scared to have my newborn in the same household as this beast. someone please give me some advice if you have any. please. Edit****** to all of you that have taken my post out of context: the title and me referring to him as a beast and savage were words used out of frustration. words! nothing else except words used on a website...not to the childs face. to all of you that have given me advice or made a response that wasn't calling me a psycho or bitch thank you. everyone has emotions that sometimes run high and i think we can all agree that venting is a healthy outlet for that. which is exactly what i did.
