My son just recently turned five. I have been having huge problems with his behavior. He talks back A LOT, he causes scences in public. If you tell him you're going to take something away from him the next time he acts out, he instantly tells you he doesnt want it. And then when he hands it to you and you take it, he starts crying saying he wants it. He's also developed a habit of when his stepdad says anything to him, he automatically tells him he wants his mom. He thinks it's funny when you pop him and time out doesn't seem to be helping either. I'm not too sure what to do with him. Any suggestions or advice? And does anyone else have any similar problems?
