Little Miss Sunshine (05-03-2016)
I have to add, that while I gave a run-down of what works well with my daughter, it's often not what I actually do. I do more than my fair share of losing my **** with her over unimportant stuff...but I'm getting better. What I stated was what WORKS here, and what I TRY to do. It can be bloody hard work putting what you want into practice though.
I just wanted to thank everyone who contributed to this thread. I have been reflecting on our relationship and whilst her feelings are as important as everyone else in the family, I do need to put my foot down and stand my ground at times.
Also she has come down with a UTI and throat infection this weekend so I'm hoping this monster behavior is due to her not feeling well. She's on antibiotics so I hope my chilled out kid is back soon!
