My 8 year old daughter told me this afternoon that she hates me & I am the worst mother ever...

because I wouldn't take her at 3pm to the Aquarium..

She wrote me a note, stating so....


How would you handle this????    

I will let you all know what I did after I get some responses

hugs

She doesn't really hate you, you know that right?  She's just angry with you and acting out because she didn't get her way.

Oh, I know that.....

She is acting like this, so she will get her very own way... and it's not happening

 Me honestly ??? I would be having her sit down with two lined papers and a pencil , and telling her that i want both pages covered double spaced....saying " I hate my mom" ....

But yet again...this would work with my 9 yr old ....

I've gotten that note before.  My oldest daughter will be 8 in July.  I just told her that I don't like that kind of meanness and she can stay in her room until she can remember that she's a kind person.

Quoting Zanny:

Intersting Lanie.... 

I like that....

 LOL...might be mean, but it would make my daughter feel guilty that she was even writting it , i would get an apology shortly...because she would feel bad for saying it.

She has SAID it to me before, i just come back with " love you too"...BUT if she actually wrote it on a peice of paper and gave it to me  , yea i would make her write it out ...

I told her.... 

"Oh really???  You hate me??  and she said.. yes, you are the worst mother EVER!!!!!

So I told her to go find a better one....  I took her into her room, got her suitcase out, and packed some of her clothes... I told her if she hated me SOO much, and I was SOOO Horrible... She can leave and find another mother to love her... 

Then she screams at me... You won't even take me to Build a Bear!!!  (I had told her I would... IF she cleaned her room, which she did not)

So then I took her hand... the suitcase  and led her outside.... I handed her $10, and told her to write if she found a new family.... 

 

Her sister, who is 19... snuck her back in the house, while I was peeing... I'm not supposed to know
