I would rather think my bad parenting caused my son's behavior than him having emotional problems.
I know I need to be calm and mature and it will take a lot to not revert back to my old ways but you are all so right. It will only help overall. I want to clarify that I don't think I abuse my son. I don't punch or slap him. I do spank lightly and yell a lot. But the yelling could hurt his psyche at such a young age and it will stop! Also, I have a 2.5 yr old son who is an angel. He never does anything bad and if he rarely does I correct him so my 4 yr. old sees I'm not playing favs. but I am mainly focused on my 4 yr old b/c he's the one that gives me the most grief. Thanks so much again. I'm looking forward to getting my fam. happy again!
