my daughter is 6 yrs old, she has always been great and the perfect little helper and playmate to her little borther who is only 2. about a month before school ended she had a drastic change, around other people she is fine and behaves, even her teachers say she is the best in class and listens extremely well and the best behaved. I see this aswell in her Tennis classes the way she listens to her instructors. At home she is a holy terror, no word of a lie, her dad returned to work at the beginning of june working really long hours so now they spent most of their time with me. My daughter refuses to listen to me, she talks over me, refuses to obey when I tell her/ask her to do something, if I give her a time out she will purposely keep getting up or coming out of her room just to push buttons, she now refuses to share toys and is constantly picking on her 2 yr old brother, pushing him, stealing his toys or hiding them. Its gotten to the point that she now even refuses to eat when I make dinner and will ask her dad to make her somethign else when he is home. Last night he had enoughand sent her to her room, he told her he just doesn't understand what is happening with her and frankly neither do I!!! Our family is pretty well put together we have no issues, and we are a fairly hapy outgoing family. Nothing works with my daughter, I take toys away or other possesions and it does not affect her. She has become real mouthy and even yesterday she screamed at me in front of her dad which is why she was sent to her room. Se is out of control and my 2 yr old is picking up bad habits form her now, refusing to eat and pushing when he gets upset. I don't know how to proceed in fixing this, I just know if I don't do something its going to get worse. All my freinds laugh and then tell me how I am so up creek whrn she becomes a teenager, I don't think its funny, and I need some experienced moms with girls to throw me some advice!!! I grew up with boys, and I have 2 boys who are relatively easy to please and deal with. she is acting spoiled, selfish and rude, yesterday at tennis another little girl hit the ball over the fence next to hers and she refused to get the ball, she said it wasn't her ball, so why bother picking it up!!! this is not how I have been busting my butt to raise my kids, they alwys say thank youa nd you're welcome and please, and hold doors open for the elderly at the bank....lost and out of words, her dad told her last night if she misbehaved today or refused to listen he would empty her room and leave her with a bed and a dresser!!!
