That's how I feel about my children (both 4, boy and girl) at this point. It has been a never ending battle with them!!!
The problem is... I feel like they CAN NOT hear me. I know they can hear me. But I constantly repeat myself! Okay, the real problem is they don't LISTEN to me right? So, I walk over to them get down on their level and softly ask them "where do your shoes go when you take them off?" FOR THE LOVE OF...... The shoes belong in the same spot they have their ENTIRE LIFE!!! "Why do you have your cup in the living room?" You have NEVER been allowed food or drink in the living room!!!!
What am I doing wrong??? These are not on again off again rules or anything like that. Even simple task I have to ask 5-6 times, or USUALLY stand there and make sure they do it
I just don't understand, how can I be any fun to them? I never have fun on days like this!
Thanks for your time and letting me rant!
