I have a 3 year old daughter who is absolutely unruly. She talks back, has the attitude of a teenager, is rude, disrespectful and hits/pinches/kicks when you try to punish her. She beats up on her one year old brother and tries to break all the toys at daycare.
Hot sauce on the tongue worked for a couple of months but now she thinks that is a joke. Time out does nothing to her. I am not keen on spanking unless absolutly warranted which has occurred less than a handful of times but she thinks that is funny too. A swat in the mouth when warranted gets me a laugh as well. I do not know what more to do.
Any advice or suggestions on how to tame this out of control child would be greatly appreciated.
