When we are at my familys, my son is horrible! (he's 4.5) It's ok when its just my mum, but when theres more, he just starts acting up! He won't let me do anything and makes a silly noise when I try to talk to him unless its something nice. I do use the naughty step but I don't want to over do it. But on the weekend we stayed at my mums and even when I gave him warning before things were happening (like 'after that we are going') he still acted up and bythe end of it I shouted at him because he would not let me get his shoe on and got mud on my mums carpet. But after that it still took me 10 mins to get into my grans car because he would not be quiet (he doesn't get in a car making that noise) Also he is quite bad at anwsering questions, it has got to a point he just refuses to answer and stands there looking at me. So I told him if i give him 2 choices and he won't answer then I will pick the boring one. it is causing tantrums at the moment we'v only been doing it a couple of days but its the only way I can think to teach him if he doesnt answer he doesnt get. is it going to work??
