I've been at odds with my 5-year old for awhile now, and need some new ideas. He is frequently disrespectful, defiant, and disobedient. Seems to have trouble with impulse control and does not consider the repurcussions of his actions. He picks on his 2- year old brother, talks back to me and his dad, ignores me when I tell him to do something, and throws fits when he is reprimanded. I am very frustrated with him and unfortunately need to get my anger under control as well. We have tried time-outs, taking away tv privelages, and spanking, but nothing seems to make any lasting difference. Any one out there have any ideas for taming the strong-willed child??
