I can relate to all the posts. I have a 3 yr old boy and he is a very busy boy. Im currently reading the book Raising your Spirited Child. It fits my son well. He is so persistent, sensitive and loud. He is a sweet boy. I'm having a hard time with hitting, kicking and being mean. I do not spank so I'm at a lost for how to correct it. I try and tell him that it hurts but is doesn't seem to help. I work at a self storage facility and my mom lives on site. I get to keep him with me in the day while I work. this is one of the reasons I took the job. He is locked up inside with me for 10 hours a day well 4 days at a time. I do let him go outside after work so he can burn some energy. All transitions are a battle with him. Diaper changes are the worst he doest want to have to stop what he's doing to have it done. I would appreciate any comments.
