Recently the son had been quite disobedient and even to the point of being defiant. And he's only three years old.

Whatever we asked him to do and mind you, we always asked him politely too, has been met with a 'No' followed by a shaking of his head. Its driving me nuts. The husband and I talked about it and we conclude that it might be due to us not giving him enough attention.

And so, I decided to spent a weekend alone with him. Just us two.

We went for a MacDonald's breakfast, watched a movie and brought him to Sunday school where afterwards we met one of my friend for dinner. She gave him a Thomas sticker book and he was so happy!

him with his favourite 'jie jie' lol
love his cheeky look here.

And the best best part of it all was just before he slept last night, he turned to me and said, "I love you Mama. I happy."

Aww your boy is so sweet!

So sweet! That must have really touched your heart.

My boy is giving me the same problem - 'no' is obviously not in his vocab and punishments have no lasting impact. I need more wisdom - perhaps got to go read up again.
