hi my name is sara and i am 20 years old. I became a mother at an early age(16), and was married at 16. i love my life and my husband very much and wouldnt trade anything for the world. I want to ask some advice on parenting, but i cant figure out how to do it? I think that i am doing alot more for my son than what most parents my age would because mine is alot more well behaved then alot of kids i see his age. But for me and my household i dont think that he lives up to my expectations, and i dont think i set them to high. I have tried almost everything from corners, to timeout, to even a few spankings every now and then, i have even tried taking away privilages. I am trying to find something that works for the both of us, both he still just wont listen. it is like he has selective hearing when it come to listening when he is doing something wrong. But he is quick to stop when i count to 3. But as soon as he gets his form of disipline alot of the time he goes right back to doing what he was doing is the beginning. I dont get it he is so bullheaded and it is so frustrating. Please someone HELP!!!!!!<br><br>
