Re: Incorrigible 3-year old

Most of the time parents raise their children all the same ways but some children just do not respond to the same parenting as another child does. It is important your son knows who the parent is. Many times we give in to kids and this allows them to take on the control role instead of the parent being in control.

In other words he has his parents bluffed by his antics.

If he has been checked out by the doctor, and no problems diagnosed, it is time for parents to take back control. This does not mean to be harsh, but does mean to be consistent. You cannot tell a child no and then around and let them do it just because they threw a tantrum. Children learn early how to manipulate their parents.
