My three year old dd does NOT listen to me EVER!! I know that a big part of the problem is me. I get so frustrated and don’t have the patience to deal with her that I give in after she screams long enough. She hits kicks bites screams and whines literally ALL day long. And I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not exaggerating how bad she is. I have been thinking about looking into taking her to some kind of doctor or therapist....I do not want to take her to her primary care doctor because we have a really horrible HMO and all of the doctors SUCK and there is nothing we can do about it until we can switch insurance next year. So if anyone has any suggestions on something I can do...something like a family therapy or something...please help me!! I am in Portland, OR

thank you for all the advice but, the problem is that i have tried and tried to do it on my own and the problem is that i feel like i am at a point that i can't do it myself. that's the problem. even if it is my fault i need help other than people just telling me "stop giving in" I know that but when i get to the point where i want to pull my hair out which happens like 50 times a day i can't handle it. So how do you get patience? how do you stop feeling like you want to cry all day everyday because you can't handle it? My mom told me i needed to see a therapist and i have been but, i don't feel like it is helping.
