My daughter was the sweetest most behaved child around until about 4 mths ago. She started screaming at the top of her lungs when she gets told no.
She doesn't listen when I tell her no.
She can have her butt spanked over and over and she still ignores me.
When i tell her to come inside she tells me no and runs from me screaming!!
I'M AT A LOSS, spankings, time outs, taking away her toys, i've tried it all! I don't understand though because she used to listen better than any of my friends kids and she never got into trouble it's like someone took my angel and replaced her with this rebelious child. She did a 180 on me and now i need to find a way to get the ball back in my hands, I feel like I have no control over her and I refuse to give in. I refuse to be one of those mothers that can't take their kids anywhere without getting embarrassed and running for the car. Please help.
