Logan the brat

So logan who has been so naughty he even started to be naughty with my mom.
He has ran away from my mom and she coudlnt find him. He took off yesterday while in my moms care.

And today he was naughty on the wat to taking haiden to summer school. He threw his food down, refused to put shoes on as his have holes in, took off while packing everyone in the car.
Later we had vincents check up. The dr and i were pratcicully yelling cuz logan was so loud and rude we couldnt hear each other. Before dr came in i had to put him in a corner for timeout cuz he was running and spitting in the room.
Then we go to walmart to get milk and new shoes.
We got home and logan ran into the house. He shut the door and i said he is going to lock me out. I get to the steps with vince, a bag and 2 gallons of milk. Try to open the door but of course logan locked me out. I then screamed to logan open the door now. He opened it and took off. I put vince in his room and spanked logan.
Went to get haiden from summer school and logan took off and almost got hit by a car.

    Ashley - we all have days when our kids seem bratty to us. In fact, some time ago, I had a post about sometimes not liking my kids very much. Sometimes, they are just down-right tough! But I think at least part of a child's behaviour has to do with how we, as his parents, see him. If we see him as a brat, he lives up (or rather down) to it. If we see him as good and capable, he may at least try to live up to that. Have you ever done any reading on some positive parenting techniques? I would recommend the AhaParenting website, where she has an ages & stages section. It takes patience and hard work by the parent, but I have found that this approach really does work in the long run. If you don't see any improvement with these techniques over the summer, I would definitely speak to his pediatrician about the behavioural issues he has been exhibiting.

    I tend to agree with Rinnahere. I only have the one child and he's only 6 months old so I don't deal with him being a "brat" but I know the day will come. I've noticed quite a few posts that mention your struggles with the boys. I think waiting until August is going to wear down on you really bad Ashley. If doc doesn't notice any real issues, maybe it's time to look into some help at home so that you can have some time to yourself and not be so wound up. We're all hear to listen and you should feel free to vent as much as you need to. But I can't help but feel like there has to be some help available to you so that you - and the kids - are not struggling so bad.

      It still sounds like he is doing things for attention. If you are struggling with loving on him because of his bad behavior, I suggest shoving those feelings aside and loving on him to see how he responds and acts after cuddling, hugs, kisses, sitting close reading and doing something fun he enjoys.
