So my step-daughter acts more like a 5yr old then an almost 9yr old. She cries over every little thing. You try and correct her and she cries, you tell her that she has to redo something and she cries, you tell her she has to write a paper and she cries......worst of all when someone corrects her in her reading and she has to read stuff over and over she cries. I don't know what to do any more. At first it was threataning to spank, then it was corner and now its just sending her to her room. Does anyone else have any of these issues? Please help.

That's great. I'm glad to hear she's doing better. She may still have the mentality that she can't do it though. You know how things tend to stick with you when you have problems doing something. My oldest had trouble reading at first too and would give me a hard time when it came time for any reading or writing homework. She's doing alot better now though. It took alot of praise and reassuring for her to feel confident with it though. Maybe that's what your stepdaughter needs. I don't know your situation but so I am just going on my experience. I hope I am of some help to you though.

She has been tested for it, she doesn't have any disibilities but she was below level. We put her in Sylvan for about 1 1/2 yrs and now she is on level and right where she is supposed to be.

Just a thought or more of a question really but does she possibly have some sort of problem reading or writing. If so that could cause her aggravation when she's having to do those things. Just wondering. Good luck though. I have some whiny ones here too.
