I have been racking my brains for a way to make B follow what I say. Spanking him did not work, making him stand in a corner does not work, and scolding him till I have no voice left does not work either. I was ready to give up.
One night, he was being persnickety as we were about to do our book reading session before he went to sleep. I got upset and so I told him that I will not read his book anymore. It made him stop what he was doing and begged me to read. I realized I had something.
From now on, we talk everyday that if he will be a good boy, I will read a book to him if I am home when he goes to bed. If he isn't, then we don't read a book and he goes straight to sleep. It has been 3 days and so far, it has been fairly effective. He has been more behaved and he's also improving on his reading skills.
I feel proud of myself right now. Teehee.
