Tell your kid that his demanding, pushy, self-centered "I want it and I want it now" behavior will no longer be tolerated. Tell the little nag that while it's okay to want or need something, he may not use a demanding, rude voice to express his feelings. If he needs or wants something, he must ask nicely and respectfully. Walk away, and go about your business until he asks nicely.As long as he keeps demanding, keep walking.
Warning: Once you set this standard, you must not back down.Your kid needs to know you mean business, or he will never learn a new more considerate attitude.
