... consequences chart " for her son. She is having a hard time diciplining him, always has. I notice she doesn't give him consequences for really bad behavior, and then the next time he takes the bad behavior to the next level. ... (6 replies)
... Hi: Its my opinion that this is about control. Your sister has allowed him to keep pushing until he has control of the home. Read any parenting book and one of their first points is going to be set firm boundaries. Every child is going to test the limits to see what they can get away with and when the authoritive figure says stop the child then use this mark in the... (6 replies)
... Hello Ozzybug. Thank you for your thoughtful reply, and obviously experienced opinion.I can see how my making the chart for them would not be as helpful as her taking on the responsibility. She and I talk a lot about her struggles and challenges in parenting. My husband & I don't have children, but know a little enough that she needs help, and she asks us for help, and our...

... i seen a post on here about a behavior and consequences chart and i was thinking about making 1 but i wasnt sure about how to go about it and if it would even be appropriate for my situation and their ages so i was looking for advice. ... (1 replies)
... Actually, that wasn't a questionnaire. They were just examples of things I needed people to help implement. It didn't have to be those exact things. Also, I have no problem setting rules, sticking to what I said, disciplining... I already know how to handle that. Like I said, there's story there that isn't being told, and it has nothing to with me being like one of them... (13 replies)

... Good luck with your daughter. It sounds like you are in a tough situation without a lot of support. I know I have had trouble coming up with appropriate consequences, but a friend said something to me that helped quite a bit. The best consequence would be "what ever her daughter wanted to do NEXT. ... (11 replies)
... EXCELLENT RESPONSE! Very wise. If you truly want to help your sister, I think it would be best to encourage her to get some counseling. She could tell her pediatrician what is going on and ask for a referral. Trust me, she's not alone. Her pediatrician would not be surprised by the question. There are alot of good books out there. Unfortunately, I can't think of any... (6 replies)
... Hello Tay. He is super polite in school, with us (my husband & I) , and all my friends even compliment on how extremely well mannered he is. He only behaves like that with her. She's not a bad mom. She's a great mom. I mean, she has done a good job to teach him how to properly behave around others, etc. Her guilt is from the father never having been in the picture. ...

... Mia This is tough!!! Your poor sister! At least she has you to help her. I think the chart is a very good idea...my suggestion is to watch Super Nanny or Nanny 911....whatever that show is. How does he behave in school? If the behavior is only with the mother then, as you said, there are some deeper issues. But why does she feel so guilty? She cant carry guilt forever... (6 replies)
... Hey There MsMia- I know this is a tough situation, but sweety, I have to say it is your sister's place/job/responsibility to discipline her own son. I know it's tough being a single parent because I have been there, but her asking you to make a behaviour/consequence chart isn't right. Now, I'm not judging in any way, this is just my opinion. As his mother, she must be the... (6 replies)

... inions ahead of time if she were to get pregnant by her sexual activities. Wrong, but creative nonetheless.

... I know my son. I know he knows his limits, I know he tests them, and I know that is age appropriate. All toddlers do this. However, toddlerhood is the age when children get out of control. If you don't reign them in now, it will get harder and harder, as the egocentricity which is toddler age-appropriate only grows. As far as my "Unwillingness to explore alternative... (119 replies)

Son just turned 18

... I know it's hard, but sometimes you just have to "let him face the music". He's 18 and considered an adult, so he will have to deal with the consequences on his own. You need to tell him that he will have to find another place to live if he's not going to follow the rules. ... (3 replies)
