I have read many posts on this issue and non of which seems to be helping me out at all. Up until a few months ago I had the nicest most polite, easiest DS you could ask for. He has only just turned 4 so this started happening when he was 3. He is rude, talks back any direction I ask him to follow is questioned. Its just a daily struggle. I've tried a naughty corner, tried getting down to his level and calmly explaining what is expected and not expected, tried getting angry, tried ignoring, honestly I've tried everything and his behavior isn't improving at all. I've gotten to the point where I feel like the only communication we have throughout the day is a giant list of things he can't do instead of having fun and playing. I am expecting child number 2 in 5 months and it is adding a lot to my emotions.
I just want to see a light at the end of the tunnel, I want to see some techniques that I am trying actually work!
Any help would really be appreciated!
