I am new here and looking for any advice you are willing to give... I have a 5 year old daughter, who will be 6 on Friday. She is a great kid, but she is so naughty sometimes and I lose my temper. I am at my wits end trying to figure this out. She whines when she doesn't get her way, throws temper tantrums, hits her big sister when she doesn't let her play on her laptop or listen to her ipod. When I try for a time out, she fights it, kicks, screams... doesn't stay where I put her. I am sad to say that I have to spank her bottom sometimes just to get her attention, and that only makes it worse... When she has her melts downs, I get grouchy and start snapping at my husband and 15 year old daughter... This needs to get better but I am at a lose and about to call in Super Nanny.... ANY IDEAS?!?!?
