I need help to take control back
So my kids dont listen and sometimes i wonder if vince is normal cuz he is still such a well behaved baby even at 7months. At his age the older boys were into everything and was in trouble.
But i am struggling with this issues of disciplines of kids. Timeouts- we used to do it on the table with their head dowb but it kept going. So now we do timouts on the bottomn of the basement stairs with no lights on. It seems to work.
Name calling- haiden loves to do it so now for punishment he has to write the words until we say stop.
The older boys cant get along. They never settle down when suppose to. So haidens therpist said seprate them and say its calm down time-
Give blankets and stuffed animals and quite stuff. Done that but it fails.
Logan my middle climbs on everything. He refuses to listen and even after punisment he will go ahead and do same thing and even test.
So i am at a lost when i have tried everything and nothing works.
Do you have a schedule or routine for the days? Or do they run around a lot? Sports? Activities? Classes?
7am- wake up time, get dressed.
9am- snack time(haiden is in school by 8am)
9:30-10am- logan quite time as vince takes his morning nap
10-11am- play time if nice out like in summer outside time
11am- inside, while i make lunch.
12-12:30- cartoon time
3pm- get haiden
5pm dinner time
6pm- walk dog
6:30pm homwork and bed time routine starts
7:30- 8pm- quite time in rooms while i feed vince
8pm- brush teeths, and read stories.
8:30- lights are out.
Logan swim lessons.
If they got through the day without any tally's they got a reward like staying up 5 minutes past bedtime, a treat after dinner, etc.
