hi, my name is tara, i want to know how to be close friends with my 5 year old daughter . In the past, i had a very bad relationship with my husband ( he is an angry man and snaps on everything and shouting on anything ) so i was stressed and he used to tell me that my daughter will hate me ...so i always cry and shout on her and wanted her to be perfect , so i used to spank her ... Her dad too , in the past shouted on her . ( i am really sad and regret what i did and realised what i did with her was wrong) Now i want to be friends with her cos she keeps repeating that i am mean to her when i shout or want to teach her somthing . What can i do to gain her freindship and be her mom and friend before it is too late and i loose control.
she had a brother , he is demanding and that is another thing , we cant do anything together or spend time with her cos he wants to do the same thing with us ... she likes art and cooking..... please help me????
