Need advice please,
5 y/o dd started prep this year. We're told she is an angel in class and was in kindergarten too.
However, she talks to myself and DH and her sister with such attitude.
Example today she hurt herself at park, I went over to see if she was ok and smiling I said "up you get dd"
She absolutely screamed in my face "DONT YOU LAUGH AT ME" I was so shocked and embarassed. There were so many people watching. I just said "I wasn't laughing. I was smiling. Now up you get its time to go"
Playing outside I could hear her say she was going to ask for an ice cream from neighbour I said no she ignored me and went ahead and asked.
She doesn't understand "no" and will just nag and nag constantly
I asked her to put her water bottle in the sink tonight and she screamed at me "IM DOING IT". It's like having a teenager in the house?!
She is mean to her sister all the time. For example, after school pick up 3 yo dd is so excited to see her big sister but 5yo dd straight away yells at her or tells her to go away.
I've tried explaining that she hurts our feelings and also told her off, confiscated her favourite toys for her behaviour but still it continues..
DH has always been pro smack and I am against smacking so we have never smacked our kids. Now he is saying she doesn't respect us because of this decision.
Any advice on how to deal with this attitude?
