I would call a time out on your self. You need a break. She's six, so just make sure she is safe, draw a cozy bath and just relax and remove yourself from her antics.

Tell her that you would prefer, as her parent too, to also help make sure that she understands she is safe, healthy, happy, and has a peaceful environment. Then talk about what happened today. Without bashing her. Then ask her if she were the mom, what would she do? The thing is....she already had her punishment: she got a spanking. cont...
