my 5 year old thinks she is the boss of every one and any one, i have tried taking away toys, putting her in her room for time out but nothing i do seems to get the point across

Its hard, I am going through this as well with my daughter. I try to talk to her about it and tell her what it means to be bossy. I also get the I'm not being bossy back a lot. when and if she is "the boss" in the house sit down and talk to her, let her know it is your house and your rules and she can not be the boss. I think sometimes its a cry for attention. Positive attention is better than negaitive.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
