His attitude is really starting to get to me. Really habe no paitence for it!!
Yes i know he has had so many changes this past month so that could have something to do with it. He has started full time school about 3 weeks ago, he has had a new baby brother, and now we have guests coming to stay, along with my friends son i babysit. On top of this he has a cold, but i will not tolerate his attitude, and his disrespect.
Yes we tried everything since he has been 2.5year old. Time outs- he thinks is funny and will just keep testing me. Spanking he finds funny. Tous get taken away for a certain amount of time but he forgets about it and doesnt care. Just talking with him doesnt work as he has no care and will refuse to listen or talk, and when he does talk he will do so angrily. And now this has been rubbing off on his 3year old brother.
Today was beyond my limits and he was pushing me. I remained calm and didnt give into him.
First thing was right after school, i aske him to lay down and rest on the couch (he has been getting over a cold). He wouldnt listen and kept it up. At this point i said to him that he had to options which were lay nice on the couch or up in his room with me taking his toys away. And he just kept saying mommy time for me to play yet, i kept ignoring him, and he started calling me stupid mommy for wasting his time. At this point i sent him in his room, and said he was not going out to play.
Then it was dinner time. I asked the kids to meet me in the bathroom( supervise hand washing otherwise its a puddle in my bathroom). I told haiden to wait while i helped logan (little brother who is 3) with his hands. Because haiden didnt get to go first he got mad and stomped off. Then i heard him say fine he wont eat. So i said fine then go to your room. He then had a meltdown and refused to go. I told him i am sorry but i will not be eating with him when he is acting like this. So he sat in his room while we ate dinner( his plate i put in the fridge). His father went up and said he will noy disrespect me, and he will go eat dinner.
Then he got pissed cuz i couldnt help him with his reading as i was busy with baby and the three old and told him daddy will do it with him. He got pissed and when dh went to do the stuff haiden wouldnt do it and refused.
I love him but his attitude has been pushing me over the edge.
