I have 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. My oldest son, who is 4, has become very unruly and disrespectful. He never listens to anything my husband and I tell him to do. If you tell him to do something, say pick up his toys, he gets very mean and nasty. If he doesn't get his way, he'll throw nasty, and sometimes violent, temper tantrums. My husband and I have tried everything we can think of, spanking timeouts loss of priviledges, to no avail. We've even tried just ignoring him but that just makes the situation worse. Both of us are at the end of our rope and are considering sending him to live with his grandparents because we don't know what else to do. If anybody has been through this, please give me some feedback. I'd also would appreciate advice on how you got through it with your own child. I know it's just a phase, but I don't know how much more my husband and I can take!
