I have worked since she 3 months old, I get no help from her dad. I work 3 twelve hour shifts a week, that gives 4 days a week off. I make sure we spend time together and do fun stuff, even if its just playing in the water in the back yard. Still when she knows I have to go back she starts acting out. She will spit at me and pull my hair, she refuses to go to bed. I hate having to send her time out or to room when I know she won't see me much for the next three days, but I do send her to time out, I don't let it slide. I have tried to talk to her to make her understand that I have to work, I would much rather be with her but that now days most mom's have to work. My mom has suggested that I a find a 9-5 job but then I would have only two days off and I think that it would be even harder on her. Any ideas.Answer Question
