My son is 4 and a half. He has really been acting out lately. He hasn't been listening and he's throwing tantrums. What can I do to get him to listen?

My son went through that too. I've been reading Dare to Discipline by Dr. Dobson and it is amazing! It has discipline techniques for all ages, so I've gone back to it often. Hope that helps, hang in there mama!

I have two 4 year olds and I do a lot of time out. I have also learned how to talk them out of tantrums by doing this. When you notice they are getting upset bend on one knee where you are his level and in a nice calm voice ask him will you please tell me why your upset so I can help you.Whatever he tells you repeat it right back to him so he knows you heard him and it is amazing how much this really works. Well 95% of the time once in a while it doesn't work. I also realize if my boys are even slightly hungry they get irritable and act out.
