My 3 year old son does not ever listen. I feel it has to do with him getting spanking since he was 1 years old (his father). I was never a fan of spankings but his dad thought it worked. I did not spank my daughter and i can see a major difference. My son is aggressive and stubborn and does not listen. If you tell him to do something he just stands there and cry even if you spank him he just looks at you angry with his arms crossed. I feel like spanking have made him immune to timeouts. I don't know. Now that his father is out of the picture( divorce soon) I want to change things up and not have to use spanking but it is soo hard, He does not listen. He rips things for fun. He bites the cat. He runs in the store and I have to chase him. I am over whelmed now that I am alone with no husband, He was the one that disciplined. I feel like I am stuck with the mess he created because of his parenting styles. I was the one that worked so my children was always at home with an impatient, angry man who played video games all day, What do I do? Is it too late to start retraining my kid.
