I have a son ho is 5.
He is rude, obnoxious, ungreatful and very naughty.
After a difficult week of his behaviour the last straw was when I told him to go to his room
his reply "I dont care i will open the door and punch you in the face"
I took EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS TOYS OFF HIM
He is not allowed childrens TV, he is not allowed any nice snacks like chocolate or cakes.
BUT STILL his attitude and behaviour is not acceptable.
After finding him in the kitchen stealing from the cupboards i put a lock in the kitchen door.
This morning i found he had broken the lock and was in the kitchen eating crap out of the cupboards and I lost it.
I smacked him hard on his bum 3 times and dumped him on his bed in the bedroom..
I feel very guilty but I cannot see what else I can do to make him understand what is good behaviour and bad behaviour.
