The issues we are having with her are she refuses to eat at home except was she wants to eat. She will sit for an hour and,a half eating half a sandwich. she wants till she gets to kindergarten to have snack they give cookies crackers pretzels goldfish and other very unhealthy food. And at preschool lunch they have healthy choices so no problem there. But then we have had to pull her out of preschool before snack time because she was filling up on so much snack that she wouldn't be hungry at dinner. but she still takes forever to eat,dinner and we have to hound her to eat.
Other issue is she is arguing with everything we say. Lying everytime we ask her something. back talking, being rude, has forgotten all manners, disobeys all rules and I mean rules we ave always had no running no hitting, she has never been a hitter but she has started hitting. And temper tantrums have come back. Its so bad I will say no running and she will look right at me and run away. And then scream when I put her in time out.
We have tried taking away privileges, toys video games, tv, trips to grandmas house. Timeouts are what we have always used and she just doesn't mind anymore now she will try and pinch or trip people going up and downstairs cause time out is on the stairs. We do not believe in spanking, WE DO NOT BELIEVE IN SPANKING! I say it twice because I need advice other than spanking. I was physically abused and have anger issues and do not trust myself to spank. We have tried giving extra chores for her age. But nothing is working.
Her behavior at church is horrible too she runs up and down the pews after service crawls on the Floor during service she wont be quiet tries to distract anyone and everyone.
Everything she is doing is to get attention we're pretty sure but my husband and I are at a loss as to what to do.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I AM AT MY WITS END AND I MISS MY LITTLE GIRL SHE WAS SO SWEET AND A SNUGGLE BUG AND NOW SHE WANTS DADDY OR GRANDMA OR TEACHERS BUT SHE DOESN'T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH ME.
