Hi, I am just going to vent a little because I am pulling my hair out with this child of mine . She is 5 years old and has recently started prep. Every day I am worried when I pick her up because I have been asked to stay behind to talk to the teacher about her behaviour that I am starting to feel like I am in trouble. She is always rude to me and is rude to others. She NEVER listens!!! I always have to repeat what I say and scream at her to get her to do anything. I actually got her hearing tested thinking she was partially deaf she is that bad. She talks back to me all the time and she ALWAYS lies and now I don't know what is the truth and what isn't and when I try to explain to her why she shouldn't do these things she just DOESN'T listen!!! She looks at me but she isn't actually hearing what I am saying!!! There has also been to episodes at school when she has wet her pants which I think has been deliberate . The first time was right after the teacher said that the children can't interupt her unless it is an emergency such as when you wet you pants, and what does she do, wet her pants!!! the second time was right after her friend accidently wet her pants. Now I think this is a deliberate act to get attention but god knows why she needs more attention?!?!?!?!?! She is always trying to get people to notice her and sometimes she is just wierd but I don't mind that because I like her wierdness. I have tried time out, sticker charts, taking toys off her, yelling screaming and even smacking but she responds to nothing!! Tonight I was so angry I even said that she is no longer allowed to watch TV, go to gymnastics or basketball and if she keeps acting the way she is at school I will even take her out of that class (she really loves her teacher). I am thinking of taking all her toys and things off her and giving them back one by one when she is good. I am so angry with her that it is affecting our relationship to the point where I don't even want to be around her. I don't know what to do about her anymore and i am extrememly angry at myself for everything that I am doing becuase her behaviours does not reflect well on me at all. I feel hopeless and a failure. Can someone please please please help me. I will take any suggestions!! It is not right to feel hatred towards your child when you love them so much it hurts!!!
