My 5 year old son has been acting up pretty good for the past 4-5 months. I was hoping that it would change with him starting kindergarden. It has not. I am beside myself and don't know how to handle him anymore. His father has not been in his life since he was born the only male figure in his life has been his grandfather and both my parents have no idea of how to handle my son anymore. He is just gotten well plain rotten!!! I love him to death. I need help on what I can do to get him to listen and maybe tell us some of the reasons he is acting up so much. If anyone has any ideas of what can do I would love to hear them. I have talked to his doctor about his behavior and all they tell me is this is normal for a 5 year old child. I have been around other 5 year old children and this does not seem normal! I refuse to put my son on any medicine for this. Please help!!!

My advice is let him know who's the boss , remember, grown ups are the world to little kids, so you can't be all YOU NEED TO DO THIS! More like you can do this or this but absolutely no that

YOU MUST SHOW HIM WHO IS BOSS, THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO BEAT HIM, BUT MUST BE STRONGER WILLED. PUT HIM IN A CORNER EVERY TIME HE DOES NOT LISTEN, TAKE HIS TOYS AWAY, MAY SOUND HARSH BUT PUT HIM DOWN FOR A NAP, HE WANTS TO ACT LIKE A BABY SO HE CAN TAKE A NAP LIKE ONE. MY TWO YEAR OLD GREAT GRANDSON DOES NOT LIKE TO LISTEN, WE TURN A CHAIR AROUND AND MAKE HIM FACE THE WALL., I HAD TO RETRAIN A 16 YR OLD WHO WAS BOSS OF THE HOUSE, WHEN GOING FROM NIGHTS TO DAYS AT WORK. IT IS A HARD 2 WEEKS BUT WORTH IT. GL
