im a single mom and Im frustrated that my 6 year old is acting out again, back talking, and disrespecting me. I put him in the corner, take things away for 5 minutes when he acts up, he doesn't listen, absolutly refuses to do anything (escpecially the stuff he can do without help) or back talks and then we talk about it. I make him earn it back with an apology or helping in the kitchen or picking up his toys or somthing. I also reward good behavior and spend as much time as i can with him. he is abviously trying to communicate somthing. I just need advice on what to do here.
