What am i doing wrong
« on: July 25, 2015, 10:37:06 PM »
My son, William, does not like to listen.  I know we all say this, but it appears that he does stuff just to upset us.  He is 6 years old and we will sit there and tell him not to do us, and it is like he does not hear us.  He says that he tries to listen to us, but we end up yelling at him more then anything else for stuff that he choses not to do, or chooses to do when we tell him not to.  It appears that he is shutting down when we yell at him now, which is definitely not what we want to do.  I have been gone for 5 weeks now and after a discussion with my wife, we are trying to not yell at him as much, just for the big stuff, hoping it would help, but it does not appear to.  I will return home in three weeks and am trying to take a different take with I'm and not yell, but it is going to be hard.  Does anyone have any recommendations, on what we can do with him, and on how i can keep my cool.  We have not resorted to taking him to any specialists, and we have not hit him, but have done everything else.  My wife thinks that hitting him will not help, i know it sure kept me straight though growing up.  Is this something that he will out grow, is it his way of saying i need to spend some more time with him.  This has been going on for a few years and we thought that he would be better, but thats not happening.

Change the approach, hitting is not good lie to him, tell him unsuccessful stories with some bad endings!
hope this helps

I always find a good dose of positive reinforcement goes a long way... so make sure your rewarding good behaviour too as then he'll be more likely to repeat that! Hope that helps
