I am at a loss with this one. I've used everything I could think of to help my child but I fail. Each and every time. I get frustrated. I yell. Then I feel remorse because I know he can't help it.
He doesn't understand or can't grasp the idea he needs to think of others. He cannot understand why he can't just do as he pleases. Well, why can't he jump from the sofa? It's what he wants to do. No amount of explanation will do. He won't accept/grasp the reason. He will repeat the rule back to me but won't necessarily follow it. Now, mind you, he's very good a policing other people.
I'm in a place where I feel helpless. I don't know what to do with him. I want him to understand that rules are in place for a reason. I worry that as an adult he will disregard law and end up in prison, not because he's being malicious, but negligent. I lay awake nights with this worry. If you know me at all, you know there are very few things that keep me awake at night.
