  • Bad behavior in a young child not only hinders the learning of that child but it hinders the learning of every child in the class and until consequences for bad behaviors are returned in schools and in the home, we will continue to see our society crumble and become uncivilized.

  • Rhetorical question: Do parents forever supersede their children? Do they forever get to call the shots, no matter how old the children are? Answer: As long as the children are dependent on them, which means as long as it’s THEIR home the children live in, and as long as it’s THEIR money supporting the children, the answer is yes, they do, because those count as dependencies on them.

  • I thought this video was great but i really think if you start allowing your daughter to participate in your videos like allowing her input and speaking as well u would have more followers or open another channel u and your daughter. you guys look great together behind the camera.

  • Have this 2 year old in the gym I work at and he’s so bad, nothing I do works on him if there are other boys in room. He’ll throw everything on the floor, kick it, and even hits me, throws blocks at me and tries to pinch me! And he goes everyday.

  • what should i do with my two year old when he’s not listening to me in stores when he’s stuck on playing with a toy and we need to leave or when he wants to dance on the part of the sidewalk where cars turn into the plaza….i try and explain to him baby move the car is going to come here, this is dangerous, please hold my hand, please look both ways before crossing so your safe… dance on the grass…. and he just doesnt hold my hand and he bends low on his knees and hardens his body like hes not going to move, and then i have to pick him up and hes screaming crying kicking…. sometimes its so embarrasing sometimes im so frustrated and i dont know what to do. i dont know why he wont listen, he’s 2 and a half…he doesnt listen to me for this last couple weeks. im a single mom with no help so i gotta be everything to him the good guy the bad guy the teacher the friend, and he doesn’t take me seriously or listen to me when i’m trying to protect him or instruct him that we can’t stay at the park or sticker aisle all day… one of my mentors said i should spank his butt because i have never hit my son once. i tried to tap his bum last week he looked at me and laughed. i’m worried about his future and he needs to listen because i dont want him having problems in school….please help me with any advice you can give me. i’m literally lost with him. i’ve tried being kind and speaking and educating him, i’ve tried being stern, i’ve tried time outs, i’ve tried raising my voice and saying “ENOUGH” or this is not how we behave. or shhhhh….but all i get is rage and anger and tears and screaming and sometimes i have to walk 30 mins home with him kicking and screaming while i’m carrying him because he wont walk or move when i want to leave away from him petting a dog in a yard or taking him away from something he wants to stay and do (i.e. leave park, beach, to go eat, shower sleep because its time to go home)…. i hope i hear from you. thank you.

  • Thank you for the information Dr. Conte…I have a difficult time with frustration and patience with my 3 and 5 year old…I didn’t have that good role model so I don’t know what proper discipline is. I would get yelled at and punished instead of getting disciplined. But I will use these steps and follow up with you..again thank you!!!��

  • Thank you new sub here My son lied about sneaking in his laptop after I told him it was time for bed and when I woke up he had it under his pillow and I know he probably got on it and when I ask him he said no but then he told me he did so my thing was I took his PC and his phone and TV so what now?

  • This is reality… children need structure at school and at home in order for that child to be successful. I notice parents let their child dictate and run everything. They give in to them

  • Watching this because I’ve come to the realization that my kids have no boundaries and it’s driving me crazy in this Qurantine lol luckily they are still you we will get through this but my gosh pray for me this is stressful! Lol
