Created by Updated on Jun 12, 2013
Hi Parents... i m goinh crazy with my 2 year 8 months old son... he is just a rebellion... does not listen to me at all.. he will not brush, not eat, not take bath, play with water,fall sick, not sleep at nite due to blocked nose.... please suggest me some ways to manage him... and some remedies for bangalore weather and the cold he brings from play school. My husband does not stay with us as he is in a travelling job n i also work.. so i m losing all patience in such situation n sometimes shouting at my son and even some times slap him when he just goes out of control.. pls suggest something to bring back my patience also.. i feel just sick when i think that why did i scold my son... but i m just losing my temper in course of managing everything....

This is story of every mother... u r nt the only one... It happened to me as well... but later I realised tht scolding n slapping will nt do infact it will make the situation more worst.. I wud suggest you to b patient with him... do some masti wid him..... try to make him ur friend... try to relax whn cum home n give max time to him.. n.. play games.. I just learnt one thing... tht child know only love language n u make him to do anything... with one command.

Dear Haimanti. This is a very common behavior for a child of that age. You could try the time out technique. Assign a corner in the house from which he will not have any distraction such as view of the outside or be able to watch tv. Then explain it to him that if he plays up he will go to the naughty corner for two mins. If he does something,you may give him a warning. If he does it again, he goes to the naughty corner for two mins. In those two mins he has to stand/sit there in silence. You may refrain from talking to him also. After this time gap, he should calm down. You can go to him after that and explain why he was sent there. If he doesnt change and plays up again, then you may make him go back for another two mins. This may take sometime, but it works. I have seen most of my friends follow this technique. Hope this helps.
