I am losing my patience!

frustratedI am currently pregnant and I am trying hard to get my dd under control  Ever since she turned 4 a couple of months ago I am ready to kill her.  I thought it would get easier as she got older but I was seriously WRONG!  She talks back, she is sassy, she feels she do whatever and whenever she feels the need.  She has her moments where she can be an angel and I think she is getting better.  Then the shit hits the fan.  She is snaeky and has a hard time to listening to any directions.  I am so over it.  I try to remain calm but it is so difficult.  Between my horomones and anger I think I am losing it.  I know there are so many parents out there who feel the same way but sometimes I feel alone.  I often wonder what I did wrong.  Nobody warns you of these wonderful moments when your pregnant.  Thanks for listening.

I have a little cousin who just turned 4 in May and she is everything you just described LOL but her dad so doesn't make it any better telling her and treating her like a princess!! I think its a phaze but I know how stressful it is. Go out side for a LOOOOONG breather!! I have to take breathers all the time w/ my 11 1/2 month old son.... BTW if you show it bothers you when she acts up she has kept that in mind and is now testing your patience!

I feel the same way about my 3 year old.  I was kind of hoping it would get better once she turned 4.  Now I'm scared.

I have a 6 year old like that..he is horrible. It's sad that sometimes I don't wanna come home because I don't want to deal with his fits and his hitting me. I've tried everything. I wanna pull my hair out sometimes.

My DD will be 4 tomorrow & has been a real stinker lately!  She's back talking and decided she doesn't want to use the potty anymore, just pull-ups.  URGH!  She doesn't want to wear anything but PJs and doesn't want to go any where = just wants to stay home.  I am so frustrated with her! 

I also have a 22 month old who is a hell raiser & gets into everything.  I am due with my 3rd in Aug - so I know what you are going thru -- I have no patience to deal with my kids!  Thank god for my husband - he helps a lot with the girls.

I have to threaten my 4 yr old with an enema (LOL! - I know it's mean, but it works) to get her to do anything.

I have a 6 and a 5 and neither of them changed there behavoir till they were 5 my five year old just started to stop talking back and listening. I thought it was going to be over by 2 or 3 but it lasted till 5. My daughter just turned one and is already talking back in her own way... hoping scents it started earily it might end eairler. Just keep your ground with her talking back make sure she understands that she doen't talk to mommy like that and don't pay attention to her when she is acting out or talking back...that's the only thing I can advise after dealing with my two at that stage....
