My daughter is 4 and a half years old and I feel like I'm yelling at her all the time. I ask her to pick up her toys. She sits and plays. I ask her to put her books away and she will go play with her toys. I give her choices of what she wants to do, explain the necessity of taking pride in our home, and so much more. I finally took her toys out of her bedroom and she has a small amount to play with downstairs, but now she won't pick those up either. I am seriously ready to scream. I know my daughter has an opinion and a mind of her own but this blatant defiance is very new. All of the things I am asking her to do she has done before so I have no clue what is going on.Answer Question
