I have now been seperated to my fathers son for the past year and it seems like everything just keeps getting worse.

his dad doesnt ocme see him so i know there is misisng something right there, whenever i try to get him to eat his meals he doesnt want to , in the morning as he gets up he has stopped comming to wake me up and goes through everything frideg drawers you name it so its a huge mess to clean each morning. I try to get his to help clean and he refuses. whenever i say no to something he will go into this huge fit and start to hurt himself , pinching skin hitting etc..

his potty training is actually going really well exept for sometimes he just stands there looks at me and says oh no pipi and does it right there on the floor.. ive tried about almost everything its not easy doing this alone i get so down and im so out of it these days .. help!!

i know its not much fun doing this on your own...im doing this on my own with a 4 year old having the same kind of problems with her...an a 6 month old who is teething...im getting really teary an down myself...im exhausted by then end of the day...

what  i have found works with amber...not much but sometimes i get through to her an she can be good an then she can be awful again...but if someone else tells them there behaviour isnt good...kinda helps...an i have to learn to not yell at her...i call her over to me an talk to her calmly an give her a hug...an then she goes an does wat she is told...i think its the age an also wat is happening...like dad not being there an ambers problem also is jealousy huge part of it...i wish there was more help out there hey...sux wen ur doin it alone...try calling if there are any available like a positive parenting thing an see if they have any suggestions...
