I am going to start doing the "Works for me Wednesdays". This week we are supposed to blog with a question or topic that we are having a hard time with, so here it is.
My first question that I've had a hard time with, is what to do to get my kids to listen better? Speed Racer is 5, and Princess is 3. They are pretty good kids, but I need a better routine on how to handle the discipline issues that we may have. Speed Racer is very angry a lot lately, and I don't know why. He is very smart, and knows a lot more than most 5 year olds should. However, he is constantly having bad days at school. He hasn't gone a week in the past two months, with more than one good day. I know it's just kindergarten, but what can I do? We have tried, spanking, naughty mat time, no video games, no tv, nothing works! I'm stuck!! I need advice!!
My second is also with Speed Racer, I don't know if this is normal or not, but he is eating constantly!! He eats breakfast at home, then at school, we pack him a lunch and he eats all of it, then again a school lunch, and he eats the moment he walks in the door, he eats about 3-4 helpings of dinner nightly!! Is this normal? He is not overweight, and he is very heathly. I don't want to refuse him food, but what can I do?
