I need some advice.
I have a almost 4yr old little girl and she has become quite the little (brat) sorry to say. She screams at you, tells you no, does'nt do what shes told and if you told her to not do something she turns around and does it all over again. I have put her in time-out every time shes done some wrong, Shes even sat there for a full 10mins I've even taken all her toys away.
I have two neighbors in my complex that use to come over all the time. One neighbor has a 6yr old little boy and is the most disrespectful and very misbehaving child I have seen. He hits his mom and does other things like fight with my daughter. I have come to realization that the two needed to be separated which I have done.
My other neighbor has a almost 2yr old little girl and she use to come over to play with my daughter all the time, but what I've noticed when she comes over is she gets into everything of mine from stuff on my entertainment stand, bathroom etc. I have done everything in my power to get the little girl to listen but when I do this the mother just sits there and lets her do what she is doing (which I find very wrong). So now they don't come over much now.
I have no idea if my daughter being around these kids have set a bad example to her or if this is just an age where she acts out. I'm running out of ideas and could really use some advice before I rip all my hair out.
