Hi guys I was just after some advice. We have a 4 year old and he has been acting up lately. Testing us and just making life difficult! Argues back, talks back, doesn't listen at all. And ignores everything we have to say. We have spoken to him so many times, on his level and to try and get through to him, as sincere as he is when he says sorry he does it again! And when asked why didn't you do it etc his only answer is he doesn't know. He also is always bored. He has a room full of toys he won't touch unless he is in time out or when told to have a nap.....which he just sits there and doesn't sleep even when he is on the verge of passing out. He would rather sit down in silence do NOTHING then play. It's holidays now so he's home everyday and this causes problems. So many fights and me and my partner are always grumpy and just over it. Any advice would be great! Thanks.
