All day mouthing off, whining, crying, sassing, arguing, hitting. My MIL gives my 4yo a gift and she tells her she doesn't like it. Then tells her her presents are booring. I wanted to climb under a rock. It's not her normal behavior. I kept apologizing for her rudeness. I really don't know what's going on. She just had another meltdown and we put her straight to bed screaming and crying. I feel like presents in the morning are rewarding her bad behavior, but it's Christmas. I don't know what to think.

Well, her behavior is just a preview of tomorrow. I say just postpone it until her behavior improves or until you see fit, say like her birthday. Or you just give 1 present and put away all others.

I would have told her that Christmas presents is for good kids. You are not being good. So you do not get your presents. Or I would have said when she started act up. If you do not be nice you will not be having Christmas presents.
