I in no way abuse or neglect my kids but I'm worried cps will get called because of how out of control my almost 3 year old is. (3 in June)
Everything is a constant battle and she screams all the time.
Everytime I try to get her to go to bed at night she will scream and the top of her lungs like someone is killing her until the neighbors start beating on our wall. (We live in an apartment). She stayed up until 5am the day before yesterday and 2am most nights. We have a routine and after the story when she's supposed to lay down is when the screaming starts.
During the day she is screaming and yelling at the top of her lungs; demanding, and being mean to her little sister so that she starts crying. Her poor sister never has any peace and can't play with anything without having it ripped from her hands and then being pushed down or hit. The walls are so thin I'm afraid someone is gonna think I'm hurting them.
I don't know what to do. If I dicipline her she screams louder. I have taken away TV, toys, treats everything. I've tried time outs and spankings (which makes it worse) and nothing helps. Idk what to do to at least keep her quiet.
She was potty trained for 3 or 4 months but now she started going on the floor and when I ask her why she didnt go in the potty and she says she just didnt want to. It's like she has to do the exact opposite of what she's supposed to do.
I'm at my wits end and I just don't know how to help her :( Is any of this normal for an almost 3 year old? What can I do to help her. Please.
