This is my first time on here.
I am a single mother to an amazing 20 month old boy. He doesn't listen to me at all, never.. It drives me up the wall.
I know exactly why he doesn't listen though. Because I do not give him all of of attention. As a young single mom I need to make some changes so that him and I can both be happy.
He's overall a pretty good kid, just likes to piss me off and push my buttons and boy does he know how to do that well :(
I try to play with him all the time, but he would much rather play with things that aren't toys. I sit down with him and try to color or paint and he gets bored and walks away. He loves toopy and binoo, and the damn show needs to be playing all day even if he isn't watching it, he likes hearing it. It's annoying, and I want it to stop. I try to take him outside any nice day, but once I try toget him inside he screams at the top of his lungs. I get frustrated easily. Also, I'm really bad for getting mad at him for doing something bad, then I just hug and kiss him after cause I hate seeing him cry.
I think my main this is, it's super hard being alone and a single parent. Any suggestions?
