My 5 year old says

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

My daughter is a very outspoken fire-y little girl. Any time she gets in trouble, which is often, she screams at me and says "I'm stupid! You hate me!" I try to talk to her and tell her not to say those things and that just because she is getting in trouble and/or I am telling her no doesn't mean that she is stupid or that I hate her. I don't understand where this comes from. We struggle when it comes to our communication. She is very disrespectful to me and always screams and yells. I don't handle the situation that well all the time either. She disobeys me the majority of the time. Anyone else experience their child saying these things?

I used to let my son scream and yell in his room until he tired himself out or wanted to talk. I refused to talk to him while he was yelling and waited to talk to him when he was calm. It is definately not an easy road but I found being consistent and firm worked well. As well the behavior program has tips for parents on how to deal with hard to handle children. My girlfriend too had a son like mine and her sonm used to punch holes in the walls and she put him in the CHADS program to which is a beahvior therapist and he calmed down as well. I like CHADS because it is professionals dealing with your child and they work with parents as well on how to cope. Trust me it will get better

Thanks Kristin.....she definitely had the yelling and screaming down. I try to tell her those same kinds of things. That I do not hate her, but I do not like how she is acting, etc. I have never heard of the CHADS program. I will have to check that out.

I went through something similar with my son when he was 4. He was diagnosed with ADHD and we put him into behavior classes. When he says he hates me, I say no i love you i just dont like when you dont listen to me or you behave badly. Lots of times when my son yells and is angry i send him to his room for a time out to give him time to think. When he is ready to listen and to talk is when he will come out. I then get to his level eye to eye and ask him why he was angry and why he didnt listen and he will tell me his answer. I also gave him, consequences to his actions and took toys away or park time or treats or whatever, which taught him that bad behavior does NOT get rewarded. I am not saying he is perfect and listens all the time because he doesnt lol but it did help and I also found that getting mad and yelling back doesnt help matters. But the behavior classes help to, we used the CHADS program. Hope this helps good luck
