Moody Cheeks McGee is Impervious to All Punishment


Moody Cheeks McGee (my three-year-old sensitive Barney Rubble look-alike middle child) is getting on my last nerve.

Today he kicked me, hit me and called me "stupid." Oh, and "mean."

I really don't know what to do with him. He's my challenge. He's my test. He's a pain the ass. He's a soulful sweetie. He's both and more.

I hate to say it but more and more distance grows between us every day because of my red hot reactions to his tantrums and over the top, eardrum splitting lashing out.

Should I take away his favorite motorcycle toys and matching helmet and boot clad riders? Should I send him to a useless time-out in the black playroom chair? Should I hit him back when he hits me?

Spanking. Now there's a topic I'm definitely not ready to broach on my blog.

I'm honestly considering dragging Cheeks to a child psychologist.

Anyone have any suggestions? Quick fixes? Books?

I'm truly at a loss tonight. Defeated. If I don't figure out how to help him I'm a failure as a mom.

Hang in there Kim, we all have at least one difficult child.I imagine Kade gets quite a reaction from you when he does these things, like hitting etc, which maybe is partly why he does it. What would happen if you were to walk away and totally ignore him when he does these things and then praise him heavily when he has calmed down and is back to his old lovable Kade? Just a thought.
Love Mary

Good idea. Don't kids find negative attention better than no attention at all? I'll try the ignoring technique tomorrow. Usually when I ignore him he just does whatever negative behavior more. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for continuing to tune in.

Kim, the book your looking for is "1-2-3 Magic". Prior to me and my wife getting married, my soon to be step daughters were also impervious to all punishment, while having the nastiest tantrums you could ever imagine. When either was sent to their room or punished, or didn't get what they wanted, they would through anything, scream, slam doors, kick and what ended it was a punch. Right on my kisser! And me being the alpha male type, what can you do to a then 6 yr old girl. Well I started reading every book I could find and the one that works to this day is "1-2-3 Magic"! give it a try.~~~Chuck
