I seem to constantly be clashing with one of my four year old twin girls - I feel as though I am fighting with her every single day and spend a lot more of my day shouting than is good for any of us! She has just become so willful and will not do as she is told or listen - we have always been quite strict - if they are asked or told to do something, they do it, no questions, no nonsense - but I am starting to wonder if perhaps I am just being too hard? My instinct is to stick to my guns - no negotiation, no back-tracking, no changes of heart - but it is just getting SO hard!
Anyone else having four-year old blues?!
PS I'm not having the same issues with her twin sister, so I'm less inclined to think the issue comes from our parenting style than just her personality asserting itself (they have very different personalities)
