OMG! Over the last month my DD has developed the attitude of a teenage girl going through puberty!!! She has turned into a little *****!!!
She is rude, insolent, cheeky, ignores me, answers back. You name it she's doing it and it is really starting to get to me and I am finding I am saying things to her that I really regret. She is also relentlessly teasing her 4 year old brother.
I have used 123 Magic in the past but ( and this might sound like a cop out), with three little kids - I don't have time to be putting her in time out 100 times a day. I either want to be able to use it all the time or not at all. I'd blame on school but she's been on holidays the last 6 weeks so nothing there.
Can anyone give me any suggestions?? I am finding myself really disliking my own daughter at the moment. She is just unpleasant to be around. She's not this bad to her Dad but he is more inclined to smack on the bum then I am ( and she told me straight up that she's not mean to Daddy cause he smacks her and I don't...). And please no comments on the smacking - we are in general a know smack family but that's not to say they've never been smacked. Just to clarify...
