hi to all, i am a stay home mum of 3 children, 4, 2 and 1,
my 4 year old son is very intelligent and knows his numbers colours, right from wrong, rights his own name etc etc and the list goes on,
but our problem that we have with him and has been like this for some time, he is on the go, full on, never stop's until bedtime, he choose not to listen or hear you when speaking to him, we see a lot of anger in himself towards his brother and sister and our friends children, his rude, back chats, does not make eye contact, he sometimes finds it hard to Concentration, but loves and will sit in front of a movie (from start to finish), he is calmer and quieter when we are at home and only around mother father and siblings, but as soon as someone comes over he has to run around and show off and be silly, he will be like that the whole time, and as soon as they leave, he will then quiet down and come back to himself.
he has always jumped/climbed over our 2 meter fence, but at the moment he has been jumping at least 8-10 times a day, we have sent him to his room and taken him to time out, growled, taken toys away, we have tried all. when we take him to his room, we come back like 4 min later to have found he has climbed out of his window to have jumped the fence again,
please help me....
