Some months ago I posted about my son and I having frantic morning when we had to leave for school/work. Since then, the morning have gotten better however there is some behavior he does with me that is unacceptable.
I have the following question, have you found that yelling at your child helps or hurts? For some reason my son will sometimes wake up and be in the mood where he will directly tell me “no!”, “shut up!”, hit me, mock me, and yell things like “you’re not my boss!”
I need to know, have you found this behavior is just something I should roll with the punches, or do I need to be affirmative? If I raise my voice (basically yell) he freaks out and will start crying and tell me to be quiet but after that he doesn’t hit me anymore, yell at me, and overall listens better. This leaves me feeling incredibly guilty as I hate when people yell, but sometimes he refuses to even eat, and he’s already skin and bones. Thank you for your thoughts.
