Our son is generally well behaved – we believe in discipline and following through with threats (ie if you do that again we will take your leap pad off you for three days – just an example) we also use time out which we find effective. The problem is his grandmother looks after him one day a week and up until one month ago he has been so good. However, he has now turned into a moster lashing out at her, not listening and won’t do as he is told. I am at a lost on what we can do. We tried taking his favourite toy away from him for one week and if he was good for her the following week he could get it back – however this was a big FAIL and made no difference at all. I am beginning to think that he knows he has no boundaries with her and this has resulted in the terrible behaviour.
I am very anxious and stressed about the situation.
It is worthing noting he goes to daycare three days a week and preschool one day a week.
Does anybody have any suggestions on what else we can try or why the sudden change in his behaviour?
