I am at my wits end with Kyle. He is very intelligent and can tell us what he wants and listens to commands well. He understands that if we tell him no it means no and if we tell him in a few min he gets it and is patient. But no matter what we do when we are out and about we can not get him to walk properly with us or we get a melt down. We have tried just about everything except bribing him. What can I do to get him to walk properly? I understand that part of it is so much is going on around him but this is over the top. The ILs won't take him anywhere with them because of how much of a terror he is when he goes out. I don't like taking him places because he doesn't behave. I will take any help that I can get. When it comes to punishment we tend to be passive about how we punish him and tell him what he has done wrong and only whip when its something dangerous like taking off in the parking lot and even then we tell him what he did wrong and that he needs to stay with mommy and daddy.
