So I've decided I can't let my 4 year old DDs behaviour go any longer. I have decided on a rewards chart and writing our rules up and sitting her down and explaining them so she's got clear messages on what is acceptable and also having a routine up that shows time where I do housework or sit for a cuppa and when the TV is off, and when we will go out.
We have rules and I always follow through with my threats of say not allowing any cartoons that day or going to her room for 4 minutes as a time out. Usually the threat is enough that she behaves but the main problem is her screaming at us the moment she doesn't get what she wants. I just feel like I can't discipline her for getting upset and crying but I need to change her attitude that she can only be happy if she's getting what she wants (and for her that's either watching tv, using the iPad, or getting attention from someone - usually me - while she plays - she hates playing by herself mostly, or she has to be out of the house.)
Anyone got any charts they use? What are your rules? Has anyone had success with the schedule to get their kids used to not being the centre of their attention and doing exactly what they want all the time?
