My 4 almost 5 year old son is driving me crazy.
I just don't know what to do anymore.
He does whatever he wants to do regardless of what I say to him, he just doesn't care that he is not supposed to do that, he just doesn't care. Noting works, talking doesn't work, timeouts don't work, yelling doesn't work, taking his toys/books away doesn't work, throwing his stuff in the garbage doesn't work, spanking him doesn't work, noting I do has any effect on him, none what so ever. He could care less that I even open my mouth, cause to him all that comes out is air. Then I get the “I don’t love you mom”, or the “I am gonna hit/pinch/kick you mom” or the “I am gonna slam my door, or throw this toy, or rip this book, or break this thing”
For years I have been against people medicating their children, but I am at the point now, that I am thinking medications is the only step left.
I love my son but I am starting to hate him, and it is breaking my heart, I laid in my room today and cried for 30 mins after fighting with him for over an hour and locking him in his room. I am at my whit’s end.
Do any of you have any advice?
