Losing my mind over my son’s behavior…
I am a single mother of a 3 year old. I love him very much and he is all I have. But he is getting more and more defiant by the day and it is causing problems… I am currently staying with friends until I find a decent job that I can afford my own place, We have moved several times this year so I know absolutely that this is part of it. He will not listen to me and he is destructive… I am about to be kicked out of my friends house because of it.. I came down to my fathers for a bit to give them some space but I have to go back and am afraid we will end up homeless if something doesn’t change… It started about a year and a half ago when I got home from my deployment overseas… I am losing wieght, losing sleep, he doesnt eat much and refuses to sleep most nights… I have done timeouts, took toys away, spankings, tried just reassuring him everything is alright, I try not to be stressed around him. I feel horrible because it has gotten to the point where I pray that his father decides to be apart of his life and take him for a while… I don’t go out or am at a diff guys house every night. I try to give him everything he needs and keep as much routine as possible but its getting impossible to stay calm anymore… He is not just a hyper 3 year old.. People refuse to watch him and I am at my wits end… Please help.a rant, tell us your story.
