I wrote a while ago, a few times about my son and his behaviour. Im still having a hard time dealing with this behaviour of his, so is DP.
DS is most of the time doing the wrong thing. He never listens and never follows instructions. Positive reinforcement does not work. Stickers and charts do not work. Praising him for his good behaviour changes nothing.
It has gotten to the stage where yelling at him is an hourly occurance and time out is every 20 minutes. Although i dont even know why i still put him in time out as its clearly not doing anything and neither is explaining what he has done wrong. We never used to yell but now we just cant handle being calm the whole time anymore, it changes nothing. Im not sure where it is i go from here or what i do. I am at the stage where i am crying every night before i go to sleep because i dont want to get up to my own kids and because i keep thinking there is something more to this. I love every time he goes to day care because i finally dont have to deal with the stress he causes me every day. I am beyond frustrated. At this point finding out if he has adhd or something would make perfect sense to me because i cant even think of any reason a child would act like this. I just dont understand it.. Call me stupid or crazy, over reacting but i just dont know what to do anymore as everything we have tried has failed.
