My son is 4, will be 5 in November and is acting out horribly! He is the oldest and has an almost 2yo sister. He has always been a strong willed boy who asks questions constantly and always wants to do what the big kids are doing. He has now hit a stage where he cries anytime he is told no, or to pick up toys or go to sleep. I have tried time outs, swats on his bottom, and taking away a favorite toy or bear. There are times when he is back to my super helpful well behaved imaginative son and then all of a sudden he is crying and screaming at the top of his lungs because he didn't get his way. Not sure what to do at this point I'm trying to stay on top of him and I know he is tired with finishing up school and adding in soccer and tee ball but I want him to behave even if he's tired! Any ideas?
