I'm a mom of a seven-year-old son, and I'm really struggling with discipline. I've been trying gentle techniques like positive reinforcement, redirection, and time-outs, but they don't seem to be working for my child. He is still acting out and misbehaving despite my efforts.
I'm now at a loss of what to do next. I don't want to resort to harsh punishment, but I also don't want my child to continue with his bad behavior. I'm wondering if any other parents have been in a similar situation and could offer some advice on how to discipline a child who is not responding to gentle techniques.
Thanks in advance for your help!
