Re: So tired of the screaming/crying!
yoohoo, hotdogs and chocolate milk arent all that healthy and he may be reacting to that alone. kids can have some major reactions to junk food. even food coloring.
also there is no way this child is learning his lesson is 5 minutes of time out. hes continuing to do it you say, so he needs more time in there. and if he falls asleep, hes tired or bored. does he have work books or projects to keep his mind busy? legos? blocks?
you will do what you wish but if you are asking for help, just let all this sink in so you can see there are lots of options. it just sounds like you are letting him get away with alot and he knows he can run all over you so its a vicious circle.
