My exget my 2.5 yr old every other weekend and every other wed and tuesday. He is a real jerk by nature and a police officer who think he is invincible. Well he is teach landon how to flick the bird. today he flicked the bird and said look what daddy showed me. He also cusses and hits like he is fighting...another trait his father is demonstrating. What can I do if anything to my ex or to help discipline my child. When I go to spank him he just laughs... im obviously not spanking him hard enough but this is just reinforcing the hitting behaviour. Any ideas? anything the court can do about him promoting this behaviour? He used to have supervised custody but doesnt anymore.
I have tried time outs...taking toys away however nothing works. I am as sweet as I can be about rasising this child I am his mother... I have only attempted spanking numerous times. He does not respond to any kind of discipline. As far as raising a piece of garbage anyone who judges that fast without knowing is in fact the garbage man.
Wait till you have a child and you have to discipline him. Thanks everyone for the sincere answers.
His father is using the child like in most separations as a pawn...teaching him bad things on purpose. trying to make it as hard as possible on me. honestly is there any legal action that can be done? how would I prove these things?
