What is your biggest struggle with your child(ren)?

My boys seem to be this way, too. Once they start talking they just HAVE to finish what they're saying. So if the phone rings or something comes up and I tell them to hold their tongue for a moment...they don't. They just keep talking until they finish their thought.
They can also get pretty loud...like they have no control over the level of their voice.
If your son was yelling just to yell, I would suggest GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract) mixed with water. Every time he yelled, give him a "dose". It tastes bad but is
good for the immune system!
biggest issue with my boys is getting them to STOP arguing with me. If I tell the 3 year old it's time for bed, he argues and says I'm wrong. If I ask my 6 year old to wash the table, he comes up with reasons why he can't. arg!
On the flip-side, our 2 girls (even the 1.5 year old!!) are extremely helpful. If I ask them to do something, they DO IT!
So is this just a gender thing?
