I know exactly how u feel-my 4yo is exactly the same. I have more patience with him than his dad but omg he is a nightmare and it just makes everythin hard work-I can't even take him to the supermarket cos he runs riot then kicks off if he can't get his own way.
He fights with his older brothers but tbh until recently I was too soft on him and just let him get his own way to keep him quiet.
Can't really offer much advice although the gymnastic thing sounds a good idea xx

ive had a visit from the health visitor today and shes told me im doing everything right i just needed a bit of reassurance . she said he sounded like a perfectly normal 4 year old boy he just needs something to focus his energy on. so she gave me numbers for mini football classes and gymnastics so heres hoping this does the trick.

also .. ur DP is gorgeous x

Yay! Glad you're getting somewhere! I think sometimes all us mummy's need is reassurance because it's so scary being a parent sometimes hope he enjoys the gymnastics x

I agree with the ladies replys , I really love star charts. It helps that they see a positive result of their good behaviour , so that even tho they can't remember , they can see the chart every day. We have ours on the fridge. I have struggled with my school over the years, but have now learnt that it's never to early to work with nursery//school and go in a visit them, talk to them and tel them what your doing at home, maybee have a small card and a sheet of stickers he can have at nursery, and if he's good he can get a star there too, that way your all working together , (like you are with his dad), and the nursery will be more open to your son and helping him as they know you are really trying to sort it out, and they can then poo poo / field any questions from other mums easily and back you up if any probs as your working together. Keep up the good woork, it will get better as things settle down, your doing a great job X

thank you .. the sticker chart is definatly working. i have alot of good days .. every now and then he will do something really naughty and i find myself askin why .. but its a typical 4 year old thing to do . hes such a disappointment though when hes had such a good week and then ruins it all by being really naughty x
