... Dear Kitty, I sure don't blame you for whatever you feel. We cannot control other people. Just ourselves. I think is Ok to address the bad mouthing as long as you only simply say you are sorry to hear that, and leave it alone. I would, myself, apologize to the child for trying to 'fix' him/her, and explain that how they feel is not their fault. Don't try to fix this... (4 replies)
... can do about her behaviour. The only way to deal with the alienating parent is to basically ignore whatever she says or does. Do not retaliate or respond to the child with any blame for stuff that he is obviously repeating. Treat him with the kindness you have always shown him. ... (4 replies)
... e not your brothers," "You don't have to listen to her," "Is she feeding you, "Has she touched you," "Is she mean to you," among other comments. They even called Child Services which came back "unfounded" on me, the stepmom. ... (4 replies)

... I think this is a situation where you need professional intervention. It is, IMO, beyond the scope of simple parenting skills. Try to get him into a therapeutic program for anger management in children. Good luck, Sera (2 replies)

... I have an 11 year old son who has been steadily getting worse. He has stabbed doors, rammed objects into our wood work until there have been dents and holes in the area. He took a knife and carved a large hole into a window sill. That is only a tiny fraction of the things he has done. He does these things when I turn my back, he has even methodically done it to try and blame... (2 replies)
... ver to the inside of their child's room and monitored with a baby monitor at night, so they could not roam the house during the night, It worked well to keep the child safe, they just instucted her to knock on the door if she needed them. ... (7 replies)
... watched by us, it is just difficult at best juggling everything. So I'm sure we have loose ends, and my kids are really good at capitolizing on them. We have put child locks on items, but my son has figured out how to open them. So the fridge thing is just frustrating. ... (7 replies)
... As hard as it is, this is when they need to be set. And you need to remember that talking to them at this age doesn't work. They can't reason the way an older child can. You need to have a cause and effect. If you do this, then this will happen. That they can understand. But reason doesn't work. ... (7 replies)
... I am a single mother of three children I know some would say that my oldests distructive behavior is due to the fact my husband just left us. However, this has been going on since he was 2 years old I have had to put locks on my fridge freezer and most of my cabnits and somehow he still finds a way to get into our food and play with it in his room. I really would be less upset... (7 replies)
... other day without ever getting above freezing, so it is indeed starting to accumulate. Luckily we haven't had the ice some of your are getting. Little is more destructive than ice, so I am relieved we have the beautiful, soft snow. ... (77 replies)
... I think it's great that you are trying to help your sister. If you can't hear when the kids get up, just get a baby monitor. You can literally hear a child breathing. I guarantee you will know when they wake up. ... (7 replies)
... I find myself feeling sadness for everyone in your family. It sounds like the Dad isn't around and your sister is overwhelmed. The child is at risk for problems now and in the future. The knives need to be locked up if you can't keep them from him. ... (7 replies)
... Also, believe me when I say that, G-d forbid, if something were to happen, Child Services is not going to be interested in the "I worked all night & I was sleeping" excuse. I just read on cbsnewsdotcom that this single mother, who worked the night shift at a bank, left her 2 kids at home alone (she had just gotten off welfare and started a new job - can barely pay the rent)...

... and I remember telling my daughter the same thing, but when a child knows that mom is sleeping and they see something they want to do and they know mom isn't going to like it, they're not going to wake you up. ... (7 replies)
... ives is horrifying and I can't imagine why neither of you are not totally convinced to get out of bed. All parents have to do this. It isn't that unusual for a child to get up this early. I know my son does and as soon as he's up, either myself or my husband is up as well. ... (7 replies)
... This may sound bad, but it may not take long before your destructive child gets the picture. ... (5 replies)
... e, it takes all of me to get him to do anything. His day could be fine and if he doesn't get his way just one time, he will pout for hours. I have never seen a child this stubborn in my life. We have tried taking his toys out of his room,spanking,and he gets very destructive when he is disciplined. ... (4 replies)
... you know your child, and if something is not right and you knwo it keep on ti utnil you feel you have the answer. As for your child being too young, this is not true. It is "more difficult" to diagnose at that age but not impossible or even unlikely. ... (14 replies)
