My dd is out of control!..and quiet honestly, I don't know what to do to get her under control. She's 3 and has recently started acting up again but worse. Her fits have become screaming at the top of her lungs, throwing things, toeing the line to where she's not doing something wrong but getting close. She's started acting out in public again..just trying to get her way, and yelling "no" followed by "you can't spank me". Even her basic manners (please and thank you and excuse me when she farts) are becoming few and far between. She's started hitting during fits..I'm just at a loss. Dh wants to spank her, but if we go that route, it'd all day of her being spanked..and I feel that there's a more reasonable way to get her to listen and do what we're telling her and getting her to act right. I want to be able to enjoy my child, but she's making it very hard to do. She's getting plenty of attention and nothing has changed to make her go into these fits of rage if she doesn't get her way. I'm home with her all day, so I'm the one taking the brunt of all the fits, and I'm tired of the constant fighting. Everything is a battle with her, from sitting down to eat all the way to bedtime (when she seems to want to pull very late nighters). What can I do to get her on the right path again? Please no bashing.
