    Default Laughing at me/caregiver when told off for misbehaving

    Ever since my DS was 1, he has always laughed at me whenever I told him off.

    He still does it now at 2.8 years.i would like to address it but I'm not sure of the best way.

    Basically any time he does something naughty he just laughs when he gets told off.

    I'm pretty used to it, it's frustrating but I've just accepted that that's the way he is

    However, now he has apparently started doing it at daycare. His teacher hasn't experienced it before & isn't sure of the best way to deal with it - she said she'll talk to the director for some tips.

    Anyone have any ideas on how we can start addressing it - both for me at home & that i can tell daycare so we are both on the same page?

    Like regardless of how firmly I tell him off he just laughs. Daycare are now having the same experience.

    My DS is almost 4 and still laughs at me when he's getting in trouble. I just ignore it and follow through with the consequence. I'm surprised his teacher hasn't experienced it before though, I've seen loads of kids do the same thing!

    This ^^

    I think it's normal, ignore it and follow through.

    I'll have to find out what consequences they use at daycare

    I'm not really sure what consequences to use at home, as the only thing that has even marginal success is taking a toy away. Every other consequence gets laughed at or he lashes out.

    What should I follow through with? Every consequence I've ever tried except time out is apparently absolutely hilarious as well. Time out causes him to lash out so I'm reluctant to use it as it creates more problems.

    DS hits his sister and laughs and runs away when its time out time.

    He gets to time out and usually starts crying etc etc.

    He is 4. I just give him his consequence.

    I think this depends what he's in trouble for. I try to make sure the consequence relates to the original behaviour. For instance, if dd throws a toy then that toy gets put away for the day. If she runs away from me while we're out then I pick her up and we go home.

    As for the laughing, try to ignore it.

    ETA: sorry I quoted the wrong post. I meant to quote the one where you asked about which consequences.

    I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. What I've tried to do is to take him a little way away from the activity or whatever is causing the issue & sit down with him quietly.

    He won't even sit with me for one second. Just keeps running away & laughing etc

    Am i doing it wrong?

    I would have a spot, maybe a chair or mat in a corner and have him sit there for a set period. You'll have to put him back many times but it will get easier with time and consistency.
