for moms with disobedient children.. disciplining and how?
Every child is different, right. My own DR. During a visit recommended the book The strong willed child after seeing his behavior in a visit. That book suggested spanking but never out of anger.
I don't like to spank. I prefer time outs, which he's sent to his room and usually cries or thrashes his room. :-( he just doesn't care. He will be the most difficult child, bossy, it's like he wants to be in trouble. My husband believes in spanking because his parents raised him and his brother that way. They had paddles and would slap theyre mouths when they talked back. He says it worked for him and he's now a respectful, patient, confident and loving man. I tell him i would rather him just talk to our DS but he does what he thinks works. I'm just wondering for those parents who have strong willed children or child that never listens, what kind of discipline do you do and does it work?
We've even done love and logic parenting classes and our son would laugh at us and continue to disobey. I try not to take it too seriously cause he is 5, but it can be quit embarrassing when we're at a restaurant, store or family's house and he wont obey and even when told he wont.....
After 3 years of TTC # 2 we are happy to announce we're pregnant! :) We have one very handsome and very busy little son born through IUI in 2007.
