Hi everyone I am the single mom of a four year old son and as he grows ever so quickly. We are facing challenges of highs and lows every day. We have always been close, but lately I feel like it's been less about fun and more about discipline where everyday is a power struggle to get him to do simple stuff from using the bathroom, to brushing his teeth, and not using the furniture as a bouncy house or throwing fits when he doesn't get his way. I want to be stern but not so much to the point where I push him away or make him feel like everything he's doing is wrong. I feel like there should be a balance between fun and discipline. I don't want to always fuss at him for bad behavior and I feel like we are drifting apart. I want that connection again that we had before he was so rebellious. He's not a bad child just simply pushing the limits.
