lol,i have patience with kids whatsoever,that would drive me crazy
take long deep breathes as often as you need to!
Respect?? From a two year old? I see where you are going, but you can't expect something from someone who doesn't understand the concept.
It's the terrible twos. Have you tried rewarding them all when they do something good? Give them stickers or treats when they behave. (try a sticker chart. Those work for some kids) Kids feel proud of themselves when they earned little pieces of proof that they can show their parents.
read what you have wrote. He is not getting any positive feedback, you are making positive feedback dependent on actions, rather than creating the behavior you want from him. If he wants your attention he has to do something bad. negative actions need to be ignored NOT punished. you need to direct him and show him what is acceptable behavior and what you want to see... not wait to see what he does and then respond.
imagine how you would approach this if you knew he is unable to listen or follow directions? Then what do you do? You show him, you guide, you set things up that he is ONLY able to do well,,,, and you reward that... Remember you are the adult... think a few steps ahead.
Make him your "special helper"? This kid either wants a lot more attention or he needs some help. I think it's the former. He has so many siblings, after all.
It is a little unfair to the other kids, but his behavior might change with time. Good luck to you.
Spank him hard. Without any anger or mercy.
try watching that one Nanny to the rescue show with that lady Jo. She's like the child whisperer
He is a boy, she is a girl, they are different. He needs activity. Stop with the movies that is making it worse.... you will discover that when you occupy him in the correct way you won't have to deal with the conflict and screams later. Use the older kids to help occupy him, try doing boy activities and girl activities. You need to realize that boys need different activities.
have you not heard the term " the terrible two's". Of course he is acting out. You need to be a step ahead and plan activities that occupy him. Give him positive feedback EVERY TIME he does anything you are pleased with. Stop with the negative, stop with the time out. Two is too young to understand the concepts involved in time out.
Those are great rationalizations that fail to deal with the fact that he is two and can not understand time out. You have to plan activities that occupy him. Turn TV OFF, walk around the yard, throw him a ball, get the other 4 and 5 year old to throw him a ball, make it a game. Keep them active and their mind occupied.
Do they rely on u to mind the kids?? Like would they be at a loose end if u didn't?
My nephew is the same way - i will sit him at the table and give all the other kids dessert and he gots none becuz of his behavior. I also take his hand in mine and squeeze it hard until he sits down and relaxes. Some children are just misbehavers. Good luck
