Watch your tone you use with your children. Even though you say the same thing, but in different tones it takes on a new meaning. Follow thru with what you say. Be consistant. Give it time to work...Some times you have 5-6 failures of the same method, but then it finally sinks in and rules are followed. Good luck.

tough one.  When my daughter wasn't listening, i tried to kind of make it seem like she had a choice, I would say in a firm (not yelling) voice that she had two choices then I would give them to her.  That way she felt kind of as if she had a say in it, and I knew that I was really in control and didn't have to pull out my hair and scream,lol.  It took a few times for her to get used to the new way of things but it works really well for me.  Hope this helps

I have three kids,and a similar problem with my daughter. We are just starting to make some progress and the best thing I can tell you is you have to be consistent. wether you use time-outs, spanks, taking toys away, whatever you have to give her consequences for her actions and then stick to whatever you say. She needs to realize that you are the one who is in charge and that is how it is going to stay. good luck!
