I know some parents don't believe in spanking. But my 15 month old listens to everything I tell him, rarely has tantrums because I swat his mouth if he screams or smack his hand if he touches something he isn't suppose to. Now your child is 3 and he can fully understand you when you talk. Spanking him when he does something wrong and then telling him why mommy spanked him is not abuse. Your child will learn and he will learn fast. People will enjoy being around him and they will tell you what a great child you have.

I'm going through the same thing with my 3 year old son. It actually is comforting to know that I'm not the only one going through this. I also was told to read 1-2-3 Magic. I've just started reading it. I'll let you know how it goes. Good Luck!

Oh also after you have said mummy doesn't like it when you shout, tell him he can stay there till he says sorry and are going to be a good boy. I know it sounds quite harsh but it works my son always says sorry and knows exactly what he has done wrong.

My son has an attitude he was 3 last nov he shouts back at me, you need to show him who is boss he is trying to pull all your strings x As soon as he shouts at you if you have steps. Start using a naughty step and tell him why he is sat there and that mummy doesn't like it when you shout. They say for every year one minute so three minutes for him. Try it see how you go, now if my son is shouting it's straight there, if he doesn't listen to me first time when I tell him not to do things like climbing etc i say if you don't get down you will go to the step x

I am going through the same thing...tantrums all day long as he doesn't listen to what I tell him and he cries to the point where he so tired he needs a nap.  I need help too

my 2..5 yr old is exactly the same..... he likes to boss around his brother whos 1 yr  5months since i had my little girl who is now 1 month old. its been a whole month of bossyness and yelling. he gets cross if we watch tv and he cant watch what he wants and has tantrums all day and thinks he owns the tv and dvd player, and once we have perepared meals for him he refuses to eat it and gets into the cupboard and demands chocolate (even if there is none) and chips instead, we dont give in to him so its been tantrums and crying from him almost 24/7and like all toddlers he is very persistant. wish i could help you, but if you find an answer maybe you can help me!!

I wish I knew I have one of those too!!! Even when he is not being bossy he still yells.



If I tell him he makes me sad when he yells and speaks mean, he will be a sweet little angel but it only ever last a couple of hours.



Good Luck
