I NEED ADVICE!!
ok so my daughter will be 5 tomorrow (march 1st) and is having some serious behavior issues at school out of no where!! shes pretty well behaved at home.. not perfect.. but not bad.. but for the past month i have been getting calls from the school 3-4 times out of the week, to either talk her out of what shes doing or to pick her up.
they say she is throwing everything in sight.. hitting teachers and children and running out the room. when i ask them what triggered it.. they say absolutely nothing!! that out of no where she just has a fit!
i am a single mom with no support from her father. i dont know if its her acting out about her dad.. he left when she was two.. didnt see her for a whole year... and now has been popping in and out of her life.. could this have something to do with it?
i cannot change that situation as i have no control over it.. but i need to have some control over my daughter.. i have tried EVERYTHING... talking with her..time outs.. taking away toys.. light spankings.. NOTHING WORKS!!! if anyone has some previous successful tips with their own experiences.. that would be great! because i have not only lost my sanity over this.. but i fear i will lose my job. i also have an appointment next week to get her counseling
p.s. her bday is tomorrow and her party is this weekend... i feel like shes getting a reward for being bad! ahhh help!!!
