RE: good parenting….any opinions???



hello! I am a new member. I have two children. elder one is a boy 7 yrs and younger one is a girl six months. eversince I became a mother second time I am having trouble relating with my first born. he is his usual self, does not eat, do his hime work or sleep without cajoling or without threats. but now I am at the end of my tither I can’t bear with his brattish behaviour anymore. As a result I am always scolding or spanking him without any result and I think out of sheer frustration. I know I am wrong and want to break out of this behaviour but my son does not cooperate at all. I sometimes think that he must be feeling like an orphan now. I don’t want to put distance between me and him but I can feel that I have pushed him away. pl help.
