I am right there with you. My 4 yr old son does not hit us, but he doesnt listen very well at all. He listens to my husband even less. Sometimes when I am talking he makes noises on top of me and starts walking away. I have to grab him and make him stand in front of me while I talk. Then hes back at it again minutes later. When I put him on time out he cries the whole time, repeating over and over that hes ready to get up. Or he gets up and keeps saying hes done. So a 4 minute time out turns into a ten minute time out because he wont sit or stop crying. I spend the whole day telling him not to do this or that. Its exhausting and I dont know what to do anymore. Honestly, parenting is not fun at all right now. And I have a 5 month old DD as well. He wears me out. I love him dearly but he is a handful.
When I tell her something I often ask her 'what did I just say?' more often than not she says 'I don't know' or 'I can't remember' in which case I repeat myself and ask her again. I also had a conversation with her about how we listen and explained that we look at someone in the eyes when they talk and hear what they say. I find things a lot worse if she tired/hungry or if she knows what I'm going to say and doesn't want to hear it!
