My DS refused to clean up 2 min worth of toys for 4 hours today. I refused to let him leave the area until he did. He finally did when I told him we was going to miss daddy coming home.

My DS is the same, yelling and time outs don't work. I just wait until he figured out it was more of a pain to not listen than to just do as he was told. My parents did that with me when I was in school. I didn't have to do my homework, but I couldn't get out of the chair either. If I wasted my whole evening sitting in the chair, that was my choice.

oh he listens to shaun just fine and his dad, but he doesnt take me seriously anymore. He makes faces at me when I try to reason with him, sticks his butt in there air when I tell him to do something. He is getting out of control all of a sudden. He is a very bright, sweet little boy, just a terror to me. Especially lately we have been having isues with his meds and I had to take him off them. So I have having the time of my life here. I am trying to be as calm as possible and try to understand. I can only take sooooooo much!!!

Besides, if I wsa a kid I would think Justin is intimidating, so I can see why kids listen to him!!

pick you battles mom.... for what ever reason what he isnt doing makes perfect sense to his how ever old he is brain. and for what ever reason your the idiot... its an issue that plagues me still, and mine is 14...

 remember action and reaction

pick up your toys, get a chocolate milk

 now that he wants the chocolate milk he will pick them up, you might have to coax him and say ok now the bear in the toy box, ok now the cars etc .

do you always WANT to do what your SUPPOSE to do? them either....

Logan has been doing that to me a lot too. I spank  him and then tell him i'm going to call daddy - he'll usually shape up for a while... i have yet to figure out what to do to get him to listen to me the way he listens to daddy :( a while back i broke down and cried lol

he hasn't been cleaning up lately and every toy he leaves out gets taken away - i swear he's going to have no toys soon

BOYS!!! I swear. He use to be such a sweety... couldnt stand to be away from eme, and now..... he doesnt take me seriously, doesnt believe me. I hear on the crying, believe me I want to SOOOOOOOO many times. Between michael fussin cause he teeth hurt, or something not going right for him and Niko on super crazy mode. I am very suprised I have hair left!!!

I have taken every single toy out of his room as well as his bed, dresser, and curtains before and made him sleep on the floor one night and he had to earn it all back. I still think there are toys out there in the garage. I even put a box with writing on it saying FREE TOYS please take, right in front of his bedroom window and had him watch people take his toys one by one!! OMG that was torture to him

OK... you said that he doesn't take you seriously ANYMORE... that tells me that you are making idle threats (not following through)

 

Momma... you have to mean what you say and say what you mean....

If you make a threat (time out, spanking, taking toy or privilege away etc...) be prepared to DO IT!!!

Example.. when my son was very little.. I was taking him to Chucky Cheeses and he kept kicking the back of seat in the car ride there.. I asked him once to stop...then I asked him a second time and said" do not do it again..or we will go right back home"

He did it again..right in the parking lot of the pizza place and I turned the car around without saying a word..and we went home. He learned right then and there that I mean what I say.

 

I am speaking from experience... I have an 18 year old son and even NOW... I can start to count to three and he'll do what ever it is I ASKED (not told) him to do before I even get to #2

Just stay consistent momma!!

OH and rewarding them for things that are expected.. is not a good idea. They have to learn early that life is not going to give them a treat every time they do something that is just a part of daily life and responsibility.  ; )

makes perfect sense. I do that constantly, I do pick my battles at times. I do follow through with a lot of things, but I also make a lot of empty threats!! Something I do need to work on. At the same time I also trying to be understanding due to his meds all being screwed up. But this has been going on way longer than his meds has been like this. Actually to think of it, I have actually been battling this kid since he was 2. Is it ever going to END? UGH
