My son just turned 4 8 days ago, and for the last 5 days or so he has been extremely bossy, does not listen to a word I say, when we went grocery shopping he got mad because I didn't buy him something and he cried the entire time and then when we were getting ready to leave he ran out the door! LUCKILY he stopped right outside the door and didn't run into traffic! He has never acted like this! I also had my 17 month old with me who was being really good. He then fights me getting in the car wouldn't sit still in his seat and screamed the whole way home! He had me so upset that I actually left my wallet in the buggy! Something I'm always checking to make sure I have with me. The next day my DH was off work and we took him to the movies for the new Monsters Inc that he has been so excited for. Well he wanted to sit in the very front and we don't like sitting in the front so we asked him to pick a different seat, and he did and then he still ended up freaking out to the point we took him outside and told him we were going to leave and he said he was acting that way because he's hungry so DH went and bought popcorn for him, he never ate it but he did calm down (though he had to be on my lap the whole time) Then when I realized I didn't have my wallet, DH went with me and DS to get it from the store (Thank God someone turned it in) and he showed DH exactly what he put me through the day before by acting out and screaming. I try to put him in his room like a time out but he just sits at the gate and screams his head off. It doesn't help. I've tried talking and reasoning, we've even tried spanking but it doesn't even phase him! I'm really just at a loss. Idk what to do with him anymore. I feel like I'm losing my mind anymore.
