My once beautiful, mostly compliant dd1 has over the past month turned into a turd. I see rare glimpses of the gorgeous girl she was but it's becoming longer between windows.
Talking back, whining, epic TANTRUMS (which she never used to do), telling dh to go away and being nasty to dd2.
We are at a loss how we should handle it. I do take her iPad away for the day but when she continues I've got nothing else. And it also punishes me in a way as then I can't use it to keep her quiet I've tried time outs but she just screams and screams.
I'm assuming this behaviour and phase is normal. And she's picked up a few choice words from daycare. What do you do? Time outs? Reward charts? Take things away?
I feel I spend all day yelling and picking on her but her attitude just stinks at the moment.
