My mother always had a switch and used it when she felt the need.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Hi there.

I feel your pain.. My boyfriend has a little boy that has a 30 second attention span. If you try to keep him in the house all day it will make you a crazy exhausted wreck, but if you can take him outside to run around, look for bugs, swing, play with ropes, etc it is much much nicer.. and he gets tired out so he's less hyper later.

I find that if I am just sitting around being lazy trying to watch him its MUCH harder than if I just get up and go do random things with him and be involved.

Get him to help you make stuff. Keep that brain working - cookies, playdough, papermache, artsy-farty jobs. What interests does he have? Dinos or football? Make them. Also, do not BUDGE an inch from being in charge, do not hmm and ha, be direct and to the point. If he is a trouble maker you need him to respect/be scared to death (in a good way) of you. Try not to sugar coat anything as it'll only lead to him thinking he's got your number...

Theres a reason my nieces and nephews avoid me but will NOT talk out of turn to me.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Yeah tomorrow is my last day i'm stuck with him
He's got the attention span of a goldfish
I won't say he's been bad while I watch him, there's been no fits or anything but it's still a pain

Vodka in your water bottle. May not help HIS attention span, but you won't care anymore.
