So my 4 year old has an insane attitude problem, and I don't know what else to do. I use time-outs and other similar punishments, and I always praise her when she's been good. She has gotten to this point where she doesn't want to learn anything from me, and she is constantly doing all she can to disobey me. Oh and her new favorite thing is yelling she hates me (not even sure where she got that word from because I don't use it) sometimes when I get on to her and a time or two just because she was mad (not even at me). I just don't know what to do...I've got an almost 2-year old as it is that I struggle with at times, but I never thought I'd get this kind of treatment atleast not until my kids were almost teenagers...Any advice?Answer Question

Oh, and the "I HATE you's" that MY daughter screams at me as I've told her to clean her room for the umpteenth time just tell me I'm doing my job. I'll be their friend later, right now I'm MOM.
