I have a 6 year old daughter who is very hard to get ready in the mornings for school. Actually, to get her ready for ballet, to go shopping, to go for a bike ride, she still give the same attitude. Stomping, rolling her eyes and starts to whine. It doesnt matter how much sleep she's had, its always the same reaction. Now she is saying that everything is boring and it is coming with attitude. I have told her that being rude and disrespectful is not how you treat a person and it is not nice and that she needs to drop the attitude; especially towards me. I have told her I will not tolerate this behaviour, given time outs, taken favorite things away and it works for the time being, but then it happens again. I'm running out of ideas. Any suggestions on how to deal with these situations? I'm getting a bit frustrated and not sure what else to do. I want to "nip it" now before it s too late. Thanks!
