So my husband is the only one that works and I try my best to have the place nice, tidy, and perhaps semi quiet if possible. Make sure kids don't whine as much. But once daddy gets home its like they all want him. Anyways, my 3 year old cries for everything since we brought sister home. He expects we say "yes" to every request. If we don't, he whines and does the cartoon crying that sounds like "Wahhh" instead of a regular cry without it sounding like your saying a word. Then sister cries because she's not being carried all the time and you sat her down on floor with toys. My husband says he feels he's getting on the kids everyday for crying. When sister is asleep, and he requests something such as more cookies late evening after already given after dinner. And we say "no" because time for bed. He let's out the cartoon cry and does it louder since your not giving into his request. Daddy has to carry him to his room while covering his mouth. So he doesn't wake sister up. Spanking hasn't helped, he cries louder. So I tried "time outs" only works when he wants to cooperate. We can't seem to go out in public because we're with the loud crying toddler. I don't want to feel like we have to give in every time just to have him quiet. My family thinks we don't discipline, that's why he whines or cries for every little thing. When his hands get dirty, the tablet doesn't work the way he wants it too, a few drops of juice spill over, or you don't say"yes" to every request. I feel like we had more patience when it was just him. Now no patience for him or both. We've given up to ever have a 3rd child. As an educator. I feel like it's no longer for me to ever be a teacher again if I don't have patience. To go back to teach when my kids attend school..

My 4 year old is very demanding like your son . I feel although it's extremely frustrating they just want attention unfortunately for us some children need lots of attention and some need just enough attention . With my son i talk to him and I make sure I take time out just for him like we read a book together or play a game . He's gotten better . I also stay at home while my husband works but he knows that when its out sons time he has to entertain our baby .
