What are some effective methods of correcting a constantly disobedient and disrespectful child? I sometimes put him in the corner to sit but it’s not effective, he keeps misbehaving. Sometimes I resort to plain spanking but I don’t like it because I know how negative it can be for a child, but it’s literally the only way to break him a little. He screams shouts, hits walls, has no respect for anyone or anything. I think it’s also my fault for always yelling at him but it’s an initial reaction for when I see him doing something awful. How can I calm myself enough to not be so angry towards him? I want to try the “positive reinforcement” parenting I just don’t know how.
