My oldest son, Brayson, will be 5 the 23 of this month. He wines and cries about the word "no".... I don't want him to think I'm overly negative. He's even gotten to where when I say "yes" he responds with "thank you for saying yes, mama".... But the wining and crying over "no" is getting out of hand.
I strongly believe in corporate punishment.... "spanking".... "using a switch".... and this doesn't work either. I've tried time out, I've tried taking away his toys. I've even tried ignoring his fits. He even resorts to doing it anyway, even after being told no, and then lying about it. What can I do?
