Ladies and gents ,

what do i say - 3yr olds .nobody in the world has disturbed me as much as my son has.I can go on pages about his freaking behavior.he never listens.i tell him a zillion time...eye to eye / at his level or wtever above..he doesnt listen.time out or taking away toys or food...makes no impact.he has got more spanking.and a zillion counselling from me and wife.spoken to him in the most dangerous tone and the most polite way ever but no difference.he repeats the same thing again and again.simple thing.for example - dont jump over mum when she is asleep.no matter how many times we have told him he does it again.he is 24 march born and weighs about 14 kgs i guess.just imagine a 14 kg drop dead weight on your tummy when you are least expecting it.he has all the luxuries in the world.everything absolutely but he still behaves like he has never had one.gosh its embarassing .simple example we might have gone to the same mall a zillion times but he still behaves like he has never been to a mall.
when we scold him he makes that sad puppy face and tears in his eyes and knods his head for evrything we say.he says i will not do again and blah blah.give 2 mins and he is back to square one.now i have no option but to beat him to get him in control.he is intelligent infact way too intelligent as he knows how to get his things done and get out of a messy situation created by him.just too dirty smart. Looking forward to some miracle.I have such huge expectations from my son as i have sacrified a lot of things for him and just expect small little things from him ..but i am no way heading in that direction - M
GOD BLESS ME

No.. YOU need to be in counseling. If you are constantly yelling at or beating a 3 year old... you need professional help.

Why does a 3 year old have to sit and read a book? Why don't you sit and read to him? You force him to read and he will grow to hate books. Reading is supposed to be FUN... not a chore that your are forced to do at 3 years old.... but an enjoyable time for all involved.

i am in the middle of a nightmare and absolutely no time to read a book.sometimes i wonder if what ever i say is getting into his head .i am done with all the councelling and teaching...being polite...keeping my temper down ..keeping my kool and having heavy patience with him.rom the moment i wake up till i sleep...i am either yelling at him or beating him.i feel so terrible about it.and feel so sick.and my son doesnt even feel bad for a second.where is he gonna end up with that attitude in future .and where am i gonna end up in the next year ..lol

this morning i told him to read a book and he says he doesnt like reading and wants to watch peppa pig.i said said you read a book and u can watch peppa pig.guess whats his answer - he says i will sit quietly and not read a book i am okay if i dnt watch peppa pig.and he has a back answer for everything and has a point at most of the times.

phew pphew

He's 3. He's supposed to be a nightmare right now. Time, patience, and consistency will be your best parenting friends... and maybe some counseling.

I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this with your son. It sounds like he may be strong-willed. Research has shown that strong-willed children, most of the time, require a different approach to communication and discipline. There's some great books out there about it. I think the best one is Dr. Dobson's "The Strong-Willed Child." You can probably find it in a local library or online.

I hope that helps! Hang in there. Things will get better soon!
