ok, so my 6 year old is stubborn. stubborn, stubborn little shit, lol! most of the time he is an angel, and does what he's told. he's nice, he's polite, he just has a HUGE issue with doing chores. it's always a fight, i have to literally pick him up and drag him upstairs to help his brother clean their room. now, since it's nice out here lately, the mountains of dog poop have been revealed and i need help picking them up. he absolutely refuses to help. he wouldn't get his shoes on, so i made him go out without shoes, then i had to literally force him down to the ground to get the poop, and then he still wouldnt' do it.
yes, i know it's gross, and he doesn't like it, who the hell does? but it's something he has to do. how the hell do i get him to do it (and his other chores), before it freezes back to the ground? i'm useless when it comes to punishment. i dont' really know what my parents did to make me do things around the house. i just did it. i feel so useless right now. HELP!!
