My daughter threw a bat at me, it was a soft strawberry shortcake bat. Still an object. I was in shock. she was so mad, that she threw it at me and it hit my stomach.
She's in her room now but I honestly need to know... What type of punishment does this require. Whatever I do, I question myself. Does this work? How long do you put them in their room for? It seems I am questioning all 6 years of parenting. I try my hardest but it seems to never be good enough.
It seems she is a serious strong willed, nasty attitude, entitled, and brat. I try not to say these things to her. I try to just be calm and neutral like parenting books tell us to be. Don't get me wrong, I'm angry and I let her know I'm upset and what she does is wrong. I just don't tell her what I really feel.
I went to parenting classes all last year, every month for kindergarten. I listened to guidance counselor advice. She is still the same way. I tell her nicely put your shoes on and I get an attitude, taking back, etc.
The next step is an outside counselor.
The conflict today started because she said, outbid nowhere, "I'm the prettiest". And of course I don't want her walking around in life with that arrogance so I tried to tell her not to say those things and that she and her you get sister are the same. That they are
Both pretty. Anyway at some point of this I put on my video camera to show her dad what she was acting like. She got mad that I was video taping her and she threw the bat.
I don't know why she thinks that instead of talking it out with me, she wants to throw objects at my body?
What am u supposed to do? This is what this board is here for, right? I feel like will this ever end? All the years ahead of us? Are they going to continue with back talk, hair flipping, ( and no she does not learn that from me), attitude, fighting everything I say, anger and entitlement etc. ???
Is there a way to change her stubborn personality and way she is. That she will continue on a long road with this attitude and actions if I don't find a way to stop it.
