My little brother is really beginning to be a pain in the ass. He was usually pretty good about not whining and stuff, but the past few weeks he's just been a real douche. His mom is a real pushover, and I think that's the main reason why. He's used to getting what he wants. If you tell him to do something that he doesn't wanna do, he takes like a step toward it then drops down on the ground and starts crying, pretending his legs are broken. The other day, he wanted something to drink so I went to the kitchen to get him something. All we had was water (he loves water) and so I got that out and was about to start pouring it for him. Then he started screaming and crying saying "I don't like that!" and saying he wanted Sprite, when he knew we didn't have any. Also, when he's mad or upset about something, if you touch him at all, like to rub his hair or pick him up or anything he'll start screaming and crying and saying "ouch" and pretending you're hurting him. Lastly, he always tells me and his mom and my dad to pick him up and carry him around places. Sometimes it's not even to carry him around. It's just to pick him up. Then when you put him down he'll say he wants to be picked up again. He does this mostly when we're busy with something, and he'll start crying if we don't pick him up.

Sorry that was so long, and I know this most of this might be normal for someone his age, but I'm really growing tired of the behavior and would like to find a way to discontinue it.

If he's a baby, yes, that's perfectly normal. 100-150% or so of babies are difficult.

I asked my dad tonight if I was ever that bad. He said I was always usually complient until I hit my teen years.

He's not exactly a baby anymore, more of a toddler. He's 3.

Plus he acts more like a baby now than he did when he was a baby. The only time he would cry when he was a baby or act anything like that was when he just woke up or when he hit his head on something.

The behavior really pretty much started in the past 2 or 3 weeks.

firstly what is this "my brother"."his mom" stuff.

and its best if you sort this out.its understandable for kids to do this but if you let it carry on he'll grow up thinking he can have his way all the time. i know people like that and its terrible

Right. But he won't do discipline. You discipline him for any of the things I mentioned, and he'll just do another. And cry.


EDIT:
My brother. His mom. He has a different mom than I do, but we have the same dad. Is it really that hard to understand? Morons...

When he's bad, blank him, don't even look at him.
When you do that to kids they just get confused and leave

I know, but I would barely consider my half brothers "family" much less refer to them as "brothers". Just struck me as odd.

Maybe you should refer to him by the proper title instead of assuming people will know what you mean. If you made things clear in your first post you wouldn't have to clarify to "morons".

Well, I have two half-brothers, a step-siter, and a full sister. I consider them all family. That's just how my family is... Plus I live with him. It's not like I can just acknowledge him as the kid that happened when my dad ****ed this lady.

Sometimes ignoring him works. But I feel like that's not enough discipline for behavior that I don't want him to grow up having. I feel like you have to discipline him for him to stop the behavior altogether. I think ignoring him just makes him stop once, and then he'll still do it again later (because that's what's happened so far when I've ignored him when he does these things).

Whatever you do, don't do the whole talk nice and see show how what he does hurts other people crap. He's three, so technically, he's a sociopath. He doesn't care about what happens to you, only what happens to him.
#19
I don't. Generally I just tell him he's a crybaby like 3 or 4 times and then ignore him. But that hasn't helped to stop the behavior so far. lol.

You might want to send him to time out or something. If you're OK with it, spanking doesn't actually cause any long term mental side effects as long as you don't abuse the child.
#21
Today my dad and his mom kept telling him to pick up his toys and he wouldn't. I had ordered a pizza and told him he couldn't have any until he picked up his toys and then he kept saying "I can't" and pretending his legs were broken and crying and everything. Then his mom asked him what was wrong and he kept saying he wanted pizza. And we were like "well we want you to pick your toys up" and he started yelling and screaming. So punishing him so far hasn't had any success. I understand that it's typical behavior, but I think it's a bit excessive (he does it ALL THE TIME now) and it gets quite annoying.


EDIT:
I can't spank him. Against my nature. I tell him I'm going to sometimes. Doesn't do anything. Can't send him to time-out because he won't walk to it (pretends his legs are broken) and if I pick him up he pretends I'm hurting him and starts screaming at me and hitting and kicking me.

I'm at a loss. I've never heard of any child with adequate disciple acting like that. It could just be the terrible 2s, though, they do last from 1-3 years. If you are still concerned, you might want to take him to a psychiatrist or specialist or something.
#23
get his mom to spank him. make him sit on the naughty step and ignore him

His mom isn't here a lot of the time. I babysit him a lot, and that's my problem. Also, does anyone know a good way to teach phonetics?

I'm sure this is also common among children his age, but he butchers the English language with his lack of pronunciation of the letter "r"

I can't stand it. I know I'm being a little bit of an asshole here, because the kid's only 3, but that's one of those things that really pisses me off and gets on my nerves...

I wouldn't even spank my own kid if I had one.
I'm not gonna spank a kid that's not mine.
Plus spanking would make him cry.
Crying is the main problem, dumbass.

dude, not to be a dick, but you may have to. establish some dominance, or he will continue to walk over you. if you are REALLY against spanking him, then force him into the naughty chair/step/corner. if he walks away, calmly put him back. do it as many times as you have to until he accepts it. tell him why he is there. and don't make it a once off, do it every time

My nephew is horrible, and i babysit him nearly every day He has ADHD so most of this is appropiate

Heres what I do pick him up and squeeze his arms and say firmly NO! (be warned this can cause more crying)

Scare him, use santa or say I'm going to put you on the street

Hold a spatula in your hand when he is naughty and just wack it against your hand occasionally. He'll get the message

actually break his legs....or you mix opiods in his milk..he'll be too sloshed to trouble you

srsly.....kids can be a pain...discipline him or get help from ur parents to do so..
or see a child psych..although such behaviour is normal imo

#34
I know it's normal, but it's really excesive and didn't start until recently. If he had been doing it for a while, and he gradually did it more and more or less and less, it wouldn't be as big of a deal. I'd still be pissed off, but he does it at least like 8 or 9 times a day. I can't stand it.

I'd try the opioid thing but I'm afraid he'd become addicted to heroin like his brother.

nope, every time he LIES he goes to time out. and if his legs are broken then he won't be getting up again will he? but in all seriousness, he knows its a lie, and he knows that it gets him what he wants. if it stops getting him what he wants, then he will quickly drop it. cool bananas?

haha, its all good man. another to remember about little kids.... no matter how much they piss you off, always count backwards from twenty to calm down before doing anything in the way of discipline. remember the first time you try the time out, it will take a while to sink in. just keep picturing what it will be like when he gets the message and stops doing it.

sorry to hear about his junkie brother too man. my cousin is hooked on meth.... not a good thing, in any way, shape or form

dude ..i was kidding with the opioid thing..never do that to a kid..it could kill him

try reward/appraisal for things done eg..behaving well..picking up toys..listening to you

try negativity.like telling him..."what you do is not cool/right thing to do..god/superior being will punish you/devil will takeyou away..instill fear in him for the wrong stuff..and reward for the right thing...should work

also please please ..no DRUGS FOR BABIES

I was kidding about actually thinking about trying it dude. Considering I used to be a heroin addict, I wouldn't do that to anybody. Jesus. You must think I'm ****ing crazy.
