Hi everyone!!



I'm down to my last straw here and desperately need some advice!!



I have a 6 year old who literally WILL NOT stay still!!! Not only will he not stay still, he is always standing. We know it is not ADD as we have been to the Doctor. They are hashing it up to him being a 6 year old but this is getting extreme. I even went as far as to buy him a movie pass and explained if you can sit for an entire movie at home then we will bring you to the movies (something he has been wanting to do for a long time). Well 5 minutes into the movie he is off the couch and jumping around!



It is so frustrating to me when I see the other children at his school or my friends children and they are able to relax once in a while.



Has anyone else experienced this and if so, does it get better!!!!



SIGH

I have three kids two that know how to act and one who doesnt. There are alot of parents who do everything they can to make theyre child listen and to no avail. If all else fails and youve tried every form of disipline for theyre actions id spank theyre little butt. Time out is the most effective method for my kids. Alot of parent holler that spanking teaches kids to hit. I dont believe that it teaches consequences. There are to many kids that grow up to be bullies and think that they can get away with whatever because parents are scared. I said spank not beat. Beaten children are violent not disiplined childre. Big difference.
