Need advice on how to deal with my 6 year old's back talk, etc
I REALLY need help with how to deal with my son, Haedyn. Ever since he found out we were expecting twins (the twins are now 2 years old) his behavior has progressively gotten worse. It started out with just mild jealousy which caused him to do "bad" things to get more attention from us. Now it has gotten to the point that I almost can't even handle him. He has a very bad temper and nearly every time I ask him to do something (or ask him NOT to do something) he huffs, puffs, talks back, growls, grunts, you name it. He gets so annoyed about everything. Sometimes he will kick, hit, slam doors, he even throws himself on the floor like a toddler having a tantrum. I've tried time outs, spanking, taking things away, offering incentives for good behavior. Nothing seems to work. I need any and all advice. Even hearing that other people's 6 year olds have behaved this way so I know it's "normal" and I'm not alone, would help! Thank you in advance!
