Expert:  proexpert37 replied 6 years ago.
What is your reaction to your children when they do not listen? Do they just ignore you when they are spoken to? Are they boys or girls? What gender are you?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
i am the grandma the kids ignore me all the time i have 2 boys and 1 girls
Expert:  proexpert37 replied 6 years ago.
Are they not listening all the time? Do you speak to them in a calming voice? Do you take privileges away from them? A 1 and 2 year old are rather still young, but the five year old can handle limits, rules, rewards and expectations. Do you praise them for when they are doing the right things and for exhibiting acceptable behavior?
