hi my boy is an amazing little person he is sweet caring, special, super smart, and many more but the last month he has been acting very desobedient, talking back, pulling h is tongue out or slamming the door of his room.
I ve tried to talk to explain I dont bellieve in spanking i feel it just promotes violence i try to reason with him and he listens and i feel he understands but soon he behaves badly again
Any tips on setting limits without spanking?

time out is a great thing, mine go into timeout, i stand them by a wall and watch them to make sure the don't look away from the wall, if tehy paddy Which is likely at first i turn my back to the childs back and stand there so the child cant get free it doesn't hurt them but holds them there for the desired time. i recomend doing it for 1 min of the age of your son so your son is 3 do it for 3 mins. Btw this is not a quick fix like smacking but it will work in time you have to perseveer as it can get worse before it gets better or failing that go to your health visitor and ask to do a parenting course they are FAB and work wonders and it teaches you to cope better too.

hi gaiamom
My little girl is exactly the same and i understand how emotionally draining a screaming toddler can be. I watch super nanny and i even bought the book (by jo frost) its hard at 1st but if you stick to the rules in it things get a whole lot easier after a week of keeping to the system. good luck

I know this sounds kind of crazy three year olds are in to excitment so you give them something complicated to do tell them that you want to play escape artist duck tape them to a chair or tie either one will work and tell them your timing them the whole time tell them you want to know how long it takes them to get free and let em go at it
