Hello all - I have a 4 year old daughter who has been very argumentative here lately and has been acting out if she does not get her way. I have been giving her timeouts and she has received a couple of swats (please nobody start bashing because we do spank in situations when it is warranted) for the MAJOR Screaming Fits! I have explained to her that she needs to use her words and not whine. I have told her that we are the parents and she needs to do as we tell her to do. Some things are open to discussion others are not. I am just wondering, anyone else having this issue and what are you doing about it? Is anything working? I am beginning to think that NOTHING will help her get out of this rut. She is normally such a lovely child and does what we ask. I am not sure if this is her way of trying to establish herself as an individual or what is going on but it is driving me CRAZY!! Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks Mommas!
