I'm a working mom and have a 6 year old boy. My son spends most of his day at child care post school since i end up at around 21:00 pm. I have noticed that my child though being very active and naughty, he has become extremely cranky and whenever he wants anything be it a toy or a simple change in TV channel he'd cry and make noise. He just refuses to listen to whatever we say. I've tried a few ways to make him to listen to me, but it isn't working. A few of them being, not talking to him, telling him that he'd go to hostel, and sometimes a whack when he crosses his limits.
But somewhere im not happy with the methods i'm taking up to make him realise that he has to listen to his parents and needs to calm down a little. I'm worried that i'm trying to discipline him way too much and this might impact his studies as he's a very good student. I don't want to spoil his future by over punishing him. Pls can you suggest someway to calm my son and make him to listen to us and feel happy.
