My kids are almost 3 and 5, and I am a stay at home mom raising them on my own. There is a dad, but he is too busy to help. I am finding that they wont listen to me at all, and are putting themselves into danger. The other day, we were getting ready to go out and they were playing out front, the next thing I know, they are gone. I found them at the end of the street trying to get into the backyard. Today while I was in the shower, I lockeed the doors and told my kids that they couldnt go out until I was done. My daughter then turned around and opened the door to let my son out. I found him at the neighbours house in their backyard. Time outs dont seem to be doing any good. Any suggestions?
