Ok, So I know the title pretty much explains it self but my goodness my 4 yr old daughter will not listen at all! She does when she feels like it and not when asked. She thows a tantrum if she doesn't get what she wants. Yes, I know she is a little spoiled but her grandpa and daddy.
Let me break it down:
My husband and I had to move in with my parent do to him and I getting laid off at our jobs we have 3 girls 4yr 2 yrs and a 1yr old we have been there for about 7 months trying to get back on our feet and my daughter Serenity(4yr old) goes to my dad for everything if we ask or tell her to do something, if we take something away from her, or doesn't get what she wants, anything we do that she feels she doesn't want to do she will go to him and want to get away from it. Now, the good thing my dad her grandpa doesn't give in to her and lets us discipline but the fact that whatever we do she says "I'm gonna tell grandpa" Or "No!" she even has the tendency to yell and give a scream when she gets mad for being told to do something and if not is getting something taken away.
We used to pank but that feel out seeing as it never worked and my hunny and I felt really bad for doing it, the time out thing doesnt seem to work because she loves going in it! and anything taken away doesnt bother her either. I know I can't be the only one, I love my daughter to death but I feel like I can't do anything right to get her to listen or act right.
Does anyone have any suggestions, any tips that will help!
thanks so much
