He only pushes your button cuz you make it easy:) put a lock over that button, be firm, be loving, and dont let yourself get worked up. I swear kids can smell frustration and will push even harder ..good luck:)

Patience, explainations, consequences. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Pray for patience and consider a glass of wine. :)

Just hold strong, and hold to the belief that tomorrow will be better. It may not be, but hold on to that belief every day until it is better! I hate the "testing" phase!!! It is a reoccuring phase, as well. My son will have a couple of really bad days in a row, but then, once he knows where his limit is, he goes back to being the angel I know. Stay strong, and let him/her know where his/her boundaries are.
