My 7 year old son NEVER listens to me. EVER. He says ok, ok ok. through out me talking/yelling. He gazes off in some other direction, he fidgets, he bounces around, he WALKS AWAY (omg I feel like I'm gonna lose control when he does that!!) he is melodramatic (well Im just gonna run away from home then!). I am so overwhelmed with this child, everything is a battle. We have even had blowouts over me asking him to wipe his bottom! At the end of telling him something his response will be something completely unrelated to what I said, ex "You CANNOT throw dirty used tissues on the floor!" his response "I really like my ds" wtf???
Is this normal??
I can't teach him anything, I can't guide him on anything, everything is an argument and apparently I am just stupid and know nothing. I feel like HE will be stupid and know nothing because he refuses to listen and learn. And I do end up lecturing and shouting to try and get my point through to him although perhaps it's sheer frustration as i doubt any gets through that way either.
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG???
