  • Maybe somehow explain to her that her friends might not want to play with her all the time if she doesn't let them be the boss too :)

  • my brothers girl is like that (5). shes actually always been like that. she'll claw another kid across the face too if she dont get what she wants. her only sibling is 7 and she was always told to giver her little sister things so she pretty much dont pitch a fit. now she expects it. everything is hers and nobody can touch her stuff. did she learn it from someone maybe? tell her about sharing and maybe she'll start to see that its not nice. i could see her thinking its all her stuff if she has no other siblings too. explain it to her and then discuss punishment with her if it were to continue. good luck!
