Hello Everyone ,

i would like to know if any of you are having behavior problems with a 4 year old . i have a 4 year old daughter and nobody wants to take care of her because she acts very rebellious , i dont want to take her anywhere because she doesn't maintain her composure people look at me like i do not educate her , at home she acts alittle better but at soonest we are outside and she is around people she acts very rude and her behavior is totally different , at school the teacher said she is fine for the most part , i'm really concern and i feel frustrated with her a lot of the times . I would really appreciate some advice . Desperate Mom

At home when she tosses a fit, ignore it. Done enough she will learn you are not having it.
When you go out and have to tell her no about anything, instead of continuing to shop and waiting to get home for a time out and taking a video away (which has nothing to do with her not getting her way about a toy or something else at the store) leave immediately with her kicking and screaming. Then tell her once in the car she can not go to the store no more until she learns to act right. Then take her out a little at a time and if she starts acting out again, take her home.

I mean , she trows tantrums , start screaming in public , at home she behave different than when we go outside , lets said we go to the store and i tell her we can't buy her the toy she wants right now , she will start trowing the biggest tantrum and start screaming , and kicking is very frustrated for me . She gets Time out when we get home and her favor video is taking away , but not matter what i do she will still do it the next time we are out , i don't want to take her anywhere because she always does the same and is embarrassing .

What consequences do you give when she acts out? What do you mean by acting out?
