My 3 years old boy not cooperative at all. He kept ignore me. never listen. Even I follow a routine for sleep he stay on the bed more than one hour to sleep. Taking to bed also not an easy task mostly. brushing his teeth is another nightmare for me. I talk to him lot, and explain right and wrong keeping eye contact. And I do starts and rewarding system too. When his grandmother is around he behave much better. But with me and my husband he is hardly get cooperate. Please please help me..

Like the moms below said- stay consistent in your routine and in your discipline. Be sure you tell him often what you expect of him, and then follow through with discipline every time, even if you don't feel like it or it's inconvenient (example: time outs in the middle of the store, we've been there!).

He's really trying to test his boundaries isn't he. Like the other Michelle has said, he's 3 and it's very normal.

The key is to be consistant and follow through with the punishment you have told him he will get if he doesn't do what you want. He will soon realize that you are the boss and it will be better if he does what you ask. He will occasionally keep pushing to see if you will back off though, that's how they learn.

He is 3 it is a phase and will pass just keep persisting with your routine and one day he will just do it.
