Why you lil\', im gonna, you better, ok thats it, you....im....I....I....I.. Well, Bil Cosby said it best when he described his father. He said that growing up he thought his father was a illiterate idiot that could not complete a sentenence. Thus so did I. Then he went on to say that the rashenell for this belief was that when his dad got mad, he would sound like " you little.......................im gonna.....................just you wait...............you..........me.............i..........." and I know the feeling, I now also along with my 4-1/2 year old and my allmost 9 year old is Jennie's allmost 4 year old. He is very small for a 4 year old and very stubborn. ok, ez so far , but it gets better, now he likes to throw tantrums over every FRIKKIN word you SAY TO HIM /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif everywhere, over everything, everyone, every 5 minutes. at first I could just use a stern tone and he'd stop. I'm 6'1 and 215, and was blessed with the voice made for a father, powerfull. people think im yelling when im not /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifso, that didnt last long and now nothing works.... letting him just scream it out is the only cure so far and i wont even post the list of what DIDNT work so far, lol, but I can say he hates soap, dosent like a glass of water to be air-mailed to him ( water only, not glass ) didnt like the water HOSE when he tantrummed while i was watering the lawn /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifdidnt like me putting him out on the curb while we finished eating at Mc Donalds, he screamed with his face on the glass and ALL the other parents were so cool and understanding /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif they were all like " you guys are good, and seem to kinda enjoy watching him dislike it " he also didnt like it when he told ( screamed ) us in Wally-World ( wal-mart, where all good parenting tactics are seen, lol, ya right ) he wanted a new mommy and daddy since he didnt get a certain toy, so we took him down, kissed him, and told him good luck finding a new mommy and daddy and walked to the next isle. SINGLE -PEOPLE would then come try to CONSOLE him and im like WTF, BUTT OUT !!! parents were like " wow, he's really pissed, dude thats cool you are letting him know thats not acceptable, even if you are in public". Cosby was right though /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif .
