For the past 3 months my 5 year old daughter has been acting like she 30 years old...talking back, telling my husband and I what to do, getting an attitude....all of that and today she's been pushing my buttons with her "NO" word. She hit her friend in the face with the door and when I told her to just go sit in the corner she yelled in my face "NO I'M NOT GOING!" And I "whooped" her butt for the first time...now I can't sleep, I'm continueously crying and upset that she pushed me that far! I have never done that before, I only threatened all the time! Now I feeel like the worst mother in the world! Am I? What can I do about how I feel?
