Raising a Mouthy Grandchild?

I have been doing this alone for close to 7 years. I have had this little guy since he was a day old. He is an only kid and spoiled rotten! Since he has started school, he has gotten mouthy with me. I will send him to time out the and words are screamed out the door. How do I deal with this?

Does he do this at school as well? I would start with talking to the teacher.

But, if you are doing this alone, and have had him for 7 years, if he is spoiled rotten, you will have to change your ways with him. Stop spoiling him. Take away his privileges and toys when he does this and make him earn them back. The longer you let this go on, the worse it will get.

Lots of hugs and kisses, and explain why it hurts you when he does this and ask him what you can do together to make it better. And explain why there have to be consequences when he does do it, take a favorite toy and tell him he has to earn it back and you'll try to help him so he can earn it quicker.

Also 7 minute timeouts if that doesn't work. Good luck.

You have spoiled him because you love him and you feel sorry about the situation he's in. Now he's learned grandma is a push-over. Teach him to say please, thank you, yes ma'am and no ma'am or he just doesn't get what he wants.

As far as time out is concerned, ignore anything he yells just as long as he actually takes the time out. He's trying to get your attention. Just put him in the chair and ignore anything he says until time out is over.

Dr John Rosemond has several books with excellent advice on this subject. You can't accept the disrepect, even if his parents do.
