My son is 4 years old. He is the most stubborn strong willed person I have ever encountered. (and I mean person not child) If he decides he does not want to do something, like tell you his alphabets or numbers which he has known for almost 2 yrs, he simply will not do it. I have tried all sorts of punishments and rewards to no avail. I just do not know what to do. How do you get an extremely strong willed child to do what you need them to do with out engaging in all out war?
