Terrible mom

With logans behavior all day i tried so hard to stay calm. But i lost it.
He woke up extreamly early and refused to lay down. He was jumping on furniture, throwing things which all had consequences. I had errands to do and we had to meet up with my husband. We ate lunch and logan couldnt have inside voices, he jumped on the booth seat, threw food around.
We left and he stormed off in the parking lot, my husband caught up with him and gave him a spanking.
I go to walmart to get some of my stuff i had to get. Put logan in cart along with vincent, haiden walked. Haiden was touchinf stuff and logan constantly taddling and jumping in the cart. Now people i dont belive in taking kids out cuz it dont accompish anything and the kids win as they want to get out of the store. So i continued my shopping.
We leave and kids in car. Half way home logan didnt have the seatbelt over his shoulder like it should. I had to warn him. Then 10mins before we get home i had to pull over put my flashers on and wait until logan was done messing around with his seatbelt. I told him next time he is going in the harness carseat.
Got home and asked the kids to get out as i was unbuckling vincent. Logab refused and wouldnt unbuckle himself. I counted to 3 and still no unbuckle so i had to, which then he got mad and wouldnt leave his seat. I grabbed his hand harder than what i should of and it knocked him on the floor of van. He still wouldnt get out, so i i had to pull him out. At that point my blood was just boiling, he refused to go up the stairs and i led him upstairs. He wouldnt walk so i stood him up and i spanked him. He woudlnt get on his bed so i grabbed him and put him on bed and looked at him and yelled stay in bed.
I then slammed his door.

    sounds like a rough morning. Try not to beat yourself up too much, we all make mistakes and over-react sometimes and it sounds like he was for sure pushing your buttons.

    Personally, I would put logan back in a harness if he still fits - it's just one thing you wouldn't have to deal with, and it's much safer than a booster seat anyway. Mason is still in a 5 point harness and he turns 5 next month :)

          It sounds like he is doing a lot of attention grabbing behavior. Is he the type of kiddo that likes a lot of attention and doesn't care if it is good or bad attention? This could REALLY work in your favor.

          Next time he is refusing to do as you ask, compliment his brother on being a good listener and keep a pleasant attitude while completely ignoring him. It may work with him, but not right away because he's not going to realize the game has changed on him.
