Hello, my name is Maegan. I have been wanting to find a group of moms that can maybe help me with my struggle. My son, Nicholas, is almost two. He is my world. I never thought a love like this could exist. But his behavior is getting worse. I don't believe in hitting a child, and time out isn't really working either. I have gone to family members and friends for advice, and everyone keeps telling me to give him a good whipping. At the moment, his father really isn't in the picture, so I don't have a male role model for him and all the stresses of this is falling on me. I have become that mother you see at the grocery store who has a child that is just cutting up, screaming at the top of their lungs. He likes to throw his body and kick a lot. I hate it, because when we are out in public, everyone is looking at me like, what is this crazy woman doing. I love my son with every being of me. He is incredibly smart. I can have conversations with him, and he can pick up things like the drop of a hat. If I tell him, " Do you wanna go in time out?" He will tell me, "Fine!" or , " No I'm not!" Its shocking to me how such a little person can have so much attitude. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help?
