My 6 year old daughter doesn't listen to me anymore! Everything is a battle... and I mean everything. My husband tells me, I have to get tough with her.... His definition of "getting tough" is a good spanking with a side of very loud yelling... I truly believe in my heart, that if I just get down to her level, and talk to my DD it will eventually work.... But it doesn't! And unfortunately my mother and others also seem agree my DD doesn't listen. Although, I must say I have not received any complains from school!
Does anyone have a great modern day book recommendation on parenting/reprimanding for 6/7 year olds? If so, please let know...

"Family First" by Dr. Phil. I have it and it's proved useful in stopping the control battles between my son and I.

Here are several of the books mentioned and other general parenting/discipline books and time out tools. http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=15 Read the reviews and see what appeals to you.
I would also suggest you read some books with her which may help her too. See some under the "help me be good" or "Anger/acting out/temper tantrums" section on this link http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html
