Don&#39;t fight the losing battles
We tried spanking, but that didn’t faze her so we stopped. Taking away toys and privileges doesn’t work either. The only good news is she doesn’t come out of her room. Help!
Answer: You’re fighting a losing battle. This particular battle, in fact, is one of three battles you cannot win, no matter what. You cannot make a child eat, use the toilet, or sleep. You can put a child to bed, and you can enforce staying in the room, if not the bed, but you cannot make the child go to sleep.
