My daughter does not listen very well. I have tried diff ways to teacher her to listen and what she can and can't play with or touch etc. but nothing seems to work. I've tried swatting her hand or butt, firmly telling her no (I don't always just say no but tell her she can't do something with out saying no all the time e.x "that's not for Cassie", "we don't play with that" stuff to that matter), I've even tried yelling at her, well not like real yelling more like raising my voice a little. But for some reason non of that is working and it's worked for my friends who have kids and I just can't think of what else I can do. She just doesn't seem to be catching on. Half the time when I do one of those things to teach her she will just cry like and throw a fit, and I just do not know what to do.
How did you get your kids to listen to you or at least start to?
