I have a 3 1/2 yr old and an 8 mo old. My son started giving us problems around the time I got pregnant with my daughter. He will not go to bed without a fight and is now resulting in temper tantrums. He is hitting, wetting his pants, throwing things and screeming. Non of the traditional methods of disipline have worked. Because my hands are full with my daughter (especially since I am breast feeding) he tends to act up when I have to tend to her. I have tried setting time aside for just him, thinking that he might just want the attention, but it only works a couple of days and then we are back to square one. I have tried a reward calendar, again, it only works for a short period of time and he is back to his old habits. I have tried to put him on a strict schedule, he just yells and screems for hours until everyone in the house is upset. The only thing that seems to remotely work is if we all go to bed at the same time. But even then he still will not go to bed without threats of not going somewhere or TV taken away etc. I feel like I have tried everything and now I feel like it is not just a phase, it is now habit.
