A 23-year-old female asked about a male:
How can i get my son to actually listen to me and quit back talking me and also get him to stop ignoring me when i ask him to do something.

5 yr old behavior : It is not easy to reason with a 5 yr old, you can try rewarding & praizing him for good behavior & when he is not behaving you can try time out, take away his favorite toys , no TV, no vedeo games Until he listens. Make sure you always show your love & never use verbal or physical punishment. Good luck.
