My daughter is 5 who acts like she is 15! I seriously can't handle it anymore.
She talks back to me, rolls her eyes, stomps her feet, yells at me, doesn't listen. Someone please tell me how to get this under control?
She use to be the perfect child until her brother was born a year ago. I know she is jealous and needs attention ALL the time but I can't handle the way she acts.
She gets one on one attention. She is in preschool 3x a week and her teacher says she is an angel!

I agree she is testing you and you have to stand your ground. If she is yelling or talking back I would just send her to her room. Don't give in the emotions and just tell her "When you are ready to stop yelling and talk you can come out." I would check on her after a few minutes and ask her if she is ready to talk. I know one thing that worked in our house was the marble jar. We got a class jar and the kids got to pick out whatever colored marbles they wanted. When they did something nice or one of their choirs they got to put a marble in the jar. If she yells, or rolls her eyes she has to take one out. After "X" amount of marbles she gets a special treat like "Mommy and me time" or her favorite dinner.
