I have a 6 year old son and we are having issues with his attitude, I ask him to do anything and I get yelled at or told I will in a minute.
I don’t ask to much of him just to pick up some toys or put his stuff away.
If I sit him down to talk to him or take a toy away or turn the tv off he runs off with a tantrum.
Please help nothing is working.

Do you have any ideas for this mum?

  • Definitely ignore the tantrums, they’re just attention seeking games. I take away a favourite something as punishment. A toy, book, DVD, bike….your choice. Time out is an option too, but not in his bedroom where he can play with his toys

  • ignore the tantrums as they know if it goes for long enough your will either give in or get angry. My son was the same and it took over a month for him to get use to the idea. We have ahuge sheet stuck on the wall with the house rules. WE all sat down one day and discussed the rules and wrote them down. Everytime the kids broke one of the rules it was pointed out the rule has been broken and there will be consequences. its taken a while for them to get use to it. but it works
