I am at the end of my rope... My 4 year old DS does not listen to me, ever! He will listen to my DH, but hey... DH is military, and is gone from 5am and gets home around 6 pm, has dinner, gives the kids their baths, put them in bed, and is gone again to the gym to work out. Ok great... I get to fight with our 4 year old to make him stay in bed. And in the mornings, I get to deal with DS again, "dont go in your sisters room, she is sleeping" "Do not pick upthe babies, you might drop them and hurt them" "stay out of Momma and daddy's room... you have your own room " "Dont pour your own drinks... ask momma... I will get it for you" And this is constant from the time i wake up until the time I go to bed...... I'm not even going to get into the whole backtalk/sassing deal that he does. or him telling me he has to go potty to get out of his room to avoid or hold off punishment...
Now for a bit of history... DH and I were separated for military reasons for close to a year, DH was home for maybe 3 weeks the entire time, and When we were able to join him 2 weeks later, DH got deployed for a year... Now with me working, I needed a baby sitter... The sitters that I was able to afford didn;t make DS behave... gave him what he wanted... I have no idea, After basically screaming at my 4 year old today for over an hour to just stay in his room so I could calm down, i am at my wits end. Spanking, time out, no cookies nothing works... The only thing that has worked was basically making him do pushups and squats works some, but seems plain out mean considering the person I am smoking is only 4 years old. Not only that but I cant do that when we are out and about... like at the PX, DS goes off whining and crying and running around because he wants a drink... Which obviously he isnlt getting, but with a 22 month old and a set of 1 month old twins, I cant just drag him out of the store, and to the car without a scene... It goes something like.... C'mon Gwennie, come with mommy... hold on to the stroller... William get back here right now, momma said! Gwennie dont cry your fine, Bubba is in trouble not you... William do not poke the babies they are sleeping! Do it again I dare you and see how quick I smack your hand!... (this is the point I run into a cluster of people standing in the middle of the aisle)Excuse me, I need to get through please (they move maybe an inch or so, DS starts pushing them out of the way) WILLIAM MOMMY SAID GET BACK HERE DO NOT PUSH PEOPLE THAT IS RUDE AND INCONSIDERATE!!!! Yeah... fun times..
I am begging help! Any advice or ideas would be great...
