Anything I tell dd 12, I'm being mean or I hate her or I treat her different. I act different since dh has been away. She raises her voice constantly. If I tell the lil ones to do something she questions me. If I tell them to lay down its time to be quiet and go to bed, she's going to pinch, tickle, hit, or whatever to get the lil ones to hollar. If I whip her, I'm abusing her and she hopes I leave bruises so she can tell her teachers. She antagonizes the lil ones now dd7 is saying I hate her and she didn't like me. None of the punishments I've tried implementing are working. What else can I do? Fyi...on the rare occasion I do whip her, it's with my hand and typically I hurt myself more then I affect her.
