Hi, I have been a single mom for about 2 years now. It is me, and my two sons ages 6 and 4 year old who will be 5 in Dec. My question is about my youngest son. His behavior has really gotten worse in the last few months. In Aug we moved from Texas to Maryland so I could be closer to my family, so I am not sure if he is just still adjusting to the move or something else. Anyway, he is very defiant with me and ignores any request that I ask him to do. I try time outs and taking away privilages but this does not seem to work. When I try to give him an option like "do you want to pick up your mess or go to time out" he will choose time out. He would rather be in trouble then clean up or do what is asked of him. His daycare provider says he does well with her, so I guess it is just me or when I am around he will act up. I put him in sports a few weeks ago and at every practice he does not listen to the coach purposely, he will walk around the room and not particiate. When I tell him he is not going to get to play any more he says "okay" Then the other night he would not go to sleep he kept waking up every hour on the hour and screaming crying refusing to go to sleep. I just don't know what else to do or try. I am very worried because he will start school next year and I am afraid he is going to really act up in school. I am also getting very tired and stressed. I work full time and I'm the only one that takes care of them and have little help. My family still lives 2 hours away, and I go see them some weekends but I still grow very tired. Any help or advise would be great! Thanks!
