WHEN IT'S BEDTIME RIGHT AWAY HE SAYS HE HAS TO USE THE BATHROOM... SO I TAKE HIM AND HE DOES NOTHING... WHAT I DO NOW IS TAKE AWAY SOMETHING THAT HE LOVES MOST... LITTLE BY LITTLE HE'S STOPPING THAT.... AND MY SON IS VERY HARDHEADED... HE FEELS THINGS HAVE TO BE HIS WAY OR NO WAY.... I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO.... I TAKE AWAY HIS THINGS, I PUT HIM IN THE CORNER, I EVEN SEND HIM TO BED WHEN HE'S LIKE THIS.... WHAT ELSE CAN I DO? HE'S BEEN LIKE THIS SINCE HE TURN 2YRS AND NOW HE JUST MADE 4YRS AND HE IS GETTING WORST EVERYDAY....

My son does the same thing, I have gotten to the point that taking away toys does nothing and spanking him he pretty much laughs at me. I kinda blame some of that on myself for letting him getting away with so much untill now. I have found that (which I know sounds terrible) thumping him on his ear lobe when he is throwing a fit works and also telling him to go lay down in his bed when he throws a fit. As far as the bedtime thing I just threaten to put him back in the crib and he hates that idea, and we started putting classical music on when he sleeps and that seems to keep him in his room. Good luck

My boys are very hard headed and they are 6 and 4. I remove items they enjoy, i sit them down for 5 mins, i spank them when needed, i make them lay down. The most successful thing for me is ignoring them no matter what the situation and when they calm down and act a lot better. I thank them for behaving and slowly return their items. Different things work for different kids

I have two hardheaded children.My son,who is now nearly 7 yrs and practically perfectly behaved,was an absolute horror,between 2-4 years.The only thing that helped me,was going to see a child psychologist,who gave me some very helpful hints,on how to work,with my particular situation and,in no time at all,my son,was not doing the difficult behavioural things,that I had issues with,such as slapping my face,when things weren't going his way.I think,it may be the only reason,that my boy,is such a delightful,well behaved child now.....unfortunately,I am considering,going to see the same psychologist about my stubborn,minx of a daughter now!!!!!
