Our youngest bosses around our older girls when she thinks we are not listening and when we tell her off she will go and do it again mins later..

try and get down to her level , my daughter can be a bossy miss at times , so i get down to her level , dish out the right motherly tone , tell her its not on and that she shouldnt do that and then get her to repeat it so i know she listened to what i had just told her.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Mel.... I had to smile at this one... kids will be kids... age does not matter... being bossy is only trying to get attention...or assert her presence within the family.... take time to consider her as a contributor... listen to her views... she is part of the family....all the best
