5 yr old doesn't listen or respond to discipline
My 4 1/2 yr old son does not seem to remember "rules" from day to day. I feel like I'm battling the same bad behaviors every day. Am I expecting too much? He is my oldest (i also have 3 yr old daughter). I'm new to this and have tried all the methods suggested by my parents. We are consistent. His pre-school teachers say he acts well for them- "all boy" they say. Is he capable of listening and remembering simple rules from day to day without having to be reminded several times throughout the day? Is this an indication that something may be wrong with him or is this a failure on our part? I encourage any and all suggestions, please. I'm desperate to help him so we can end this constant head to head battling we do every day.
