Hi, Im new to this group so sorry if i drag on =]
I have a 4 year old that (im sorry to say) but stresses me out everyday. I also have a 2 year old and im not sure if its reacting to me taking care of my 2 year old or what it is. Every morning she wakes up and immediatly starts acting up. sometimes i can't even be in the kitchen making breakfast without coming out about 20 times before i even make a bowl of cereal. ive tried puting her in time out, taking toys away from her, taking tv away, and even taking some play time away from her. im to the point of not knowing what else to do about it. ive mentioned it to my mom and mother-in-law and they just say shes just acting like a normal 4 year old, but then i have friends that have 4 year olds or older and that have other children as well and they mention to me that i need to take her to the dr to get checked for possible ADHD (which wouldn't suprise me). Could this have anything to do with me being a teen mom and not knowing how to discipline her in the first place?? and how do i kick it in the butt now??
