My son is a good kid most of the time. He is so friendly, love meeting new people, and is so funny, BUT here lately I cant get a hold on him. He is lying, back talking, want listen to a thing I tell him to do, and even acting out! My husband and I have tried rewarding him for good things, threating to take away his favorite things, taking away those things, making him sit in time out, standing in the corner, and even spanking him (only with our hand), but nothing phases him. If I leave him with a family member to run erronds he acts a wild child, and they have even told me that if he cant act better while he is at their house not to bring him back! HE had one baby sitter that stopped keeping him because attitude and the way he acts, and almost kicked out of preschool. Im a stay at home mom now, and would like to put him in a mothers day out program to get him interacting with other children again but Im affraid to leave him there. I cant keep him at home for ever, and he starts school next year. Any advice at all would be very greatful!
