She's 8. At at school and with others, she is a model child. Perfect manners. I stay at home and have since her birth. She has always demanded my attention to the point that nobody, husband included, could even hold her as a baby because she would cry herself into puking. As she's grown, she becomes anxious at anything that she is not 100% informed of before it happening and even then, she is hesitant. She is smart, but very strong willed. It's her way or the highway. And that's my problem!! We are at constant war in the house over her behavior. She is sassy, disrespectful and aggressive toward one of her younger brothers. She says she wants them gone....obviously that is not happening. I do make it a point to do things only with her, she's enrolled in dance and softball, but the moment we return home, her negative behavior starts back up. She calls us all stupid, tells us she hates us and wants us to die. At bedtime, she is up out of her bed and all over the house disrupting her brothers. I tell her to clean her room, she refuses. I have tried every form of punishment...she doesn't care. Now my two year old it starting to do it too and I need HELP.

saw your question- i call my daughters action dr Jekyll and mr Hyde= BEFORE i took out LAKE dyes
LAKE dyes are artificial food dyes- that make some children just down right nuts (read symptom page)
i took these out, and huge difference,then i followed the rest of diet.taking these chemicals out of diet can help many not just spectrum kids
* have to follow 100%, even if my child has one treat with these chemicals- she turns into dr Jekyll and mr Hyde
it is not how many veggies your child eats, it is sometimes - just one treat that has chemicals that messes with the brain
