My daughter was born on Dec.19th, 2008. I recently had another baby girl in October of 2011. My daughter will NOT listen to anything i say. I mean, she hears what i'm saying, and knows what im asking her to do, she just WILL NOT do it, and most of the time, she'll do the EXACT opposite. Like for example, if the baby is sleeping, and shes playing around making a noise, i'll nicely ask her to quiet down a little bit, her sissy is sleeping. She will look at me, and keep doing whatever she's doing...20 times louder. If she notices the baby is asleep, she runs right over to wake her up. I'll ask her to pick something up, tidy up her toys, and she'll just walk away, or look at me and say no. I've tried time-outs, taking stuff away from her (toys, etc.) but its not working. I feel horrible...it feels like i'm angry with her alot lately, and it wouldn't be like that if she'd just listen to me, i don't ask her to do alot. I don;t know if shes just jealous or what? I make a big deal of spending enough time with her so she wouldn't get jealous. Or is it just a phase she's going through? HELP please!!
