Try not to raise your voice when telling your daughter off as children shut off when being yelled at. Get down to your childs level and get eye contact with your daughter. If you explain to her that mummy is not shouting at her then she should not shout at mummy. Children imitate behaviour so lower your voice but be firm.

You don't say how old your daughter is but i have found if u yell at them - they yell back!! We do it to make ourselves heard and so do they. I now say a short sharp NO and either change the subject or ignore them until they are calm enough to listen to reason. Works quite well usually. Hope this helps.

Well are you yelling at her? If so I think she's perfectly reasonable in her expectation that she can yell at you too.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
