My 7 yr old daughter is an angel while her father is at home. With me it is a different story. She is defiant and unruly, she doesnt listen to a word I say, and back talks me. My husband has started working out of state recently and is gone sun-fri. The entire time he is gone, my daughter acts out. She gets very violent and mouthy and causes me to have to discipline (timeout or grounding) her quite frequently. But, as soon as my husband walks through the door on friday, she is a perfect angel. And stays that way until he leaves again on sunday. What can I do to help her be a better child when her father is away?
