I need to let off some steam about my darling 4 yo son. I love him to come he end of the universe but goodness me he's very ignorant. I don't know how many times I have to say "no" everyday (probably a million). He just never listens. We've tried the whole taking toys away, time out, missing out on trips and no treats but nothing seems to work. He just doesn't seem to care. I don't think it's helped that when he was smaller my husband always used to laugh when he was doing something naughty. But literally my son climbs all over the sofa, banister & kitchen work tops. Hits his 2 older brothers. I know kids will be kids but enough is enough. What else can I do? He's due to start school in September and I'm hoping that by a Miracle he will change from being at school. He's good at preschool but not at home. Other then preschool he is always with us. Never sees grandparents or anything
My 4 year is the same. As you have two older ones I'm guessing it isn't normal then?!
Following for advice!
Yes my 2 older ones were never this bad at age 4. I'm just hoping it's a phase he's making me so tired
