My son just turned 4 and for the last couple of weeks has been completely out of control. He screams and hits if he doesn't get everything he wants and he has been a huge bully to his little sisters if they walk away when he is being mean to them he follows them and keeps it up until they cry and when they do he gets mad and hits them. If his sisters even touch anything that is his he screams at them runs up to them and hits them.
I've tried quiet time, corner time, increasing the activities we do every day, spending more one on one time with him, and even resorted to spanking him. I find myself yelling at him and I swore I wouldn't be the mom who screams at her children and I hate myself for it.
I love him to death but I am at my wits end. I just don't know what to do anymore. I don't know what happened to my sweet, caring, loving little boy.

I know how you feel my son is 5 and is ten times worse when he wants to be. My son has sworn at me, hit me, spit at me and does the same to kids at school hear and there. Last week I got a note from his teacher on his behavior and it wasn't good. So I took his video games away and tv. It worked he's been better. He's learning that if you make bad choices you don't get what you want. I have tried spanking but it doesn't work he laugh at me. With yelling we all do it but my son will yell back at me. When your son isn't listening and wants to make bad choices try taking what he loves away, I haberdasher found it helpful. But you have a long way to go with this my sons 5 and still loves to be mean. I hope I have helped
