I have never felt angrier at myself than now. I am sick to my teeth of my DD 17 mo. She has always been challenging, i dont believe there is anything wrong with her behaviourly but she is very strong minded and i cant reason with her. We have a DS aged 3 mo, whilst her behaviour has become worse since he came along its not that much worse.
I have always felt she is "hard work" it makes me feel like crap to label her but in comparison to other children from my mothers group her age she has always been way more active. She walked at 8 months old and really life became so much harder then.
Atm we have removed all the dining chairs as she climbed on the table then onto the kitchen bench top 1000 times a day, i tried everything ( distraction, getting cross, reasoning) to stop her but she didnt stop.
She tries to bounce her brother out of his bouncer, she does it smiling even though he screams and im usually telling her to stop.
We play and she gets bored very easily. She has been on and off her food the past few weeks. She isnt allowed crap food and i cook everything from scratch for her - it usually ends up on the floor .
I feel like a total and utter failure. I hate feeling like this. But im sick of her!
