Question

My son is 6. He recently has been throwing screaming fits and occasionally outright refusing to do things such as get dressed or wash himself in the bath. We feel like we cannot “make” him do anything so this causes stress and anxiety and leads to yelling. We have worked on natural consequences such as in order to read books before bed you must be out of the bath by 7:30. Or in order to have time to eat breakfast at home you must be ready to go by 6:30. It doesn’t always work and we are losing hope. Where are we going wrong?
