My daughter keeps calling me by my first name. When I discipline her she says " no nicole" and attempts to hit me.

I was going to ask you how old too. This is a pretty normal phase they go through. A simple correction to call you mommy is enough. Any other discipline is not necessary.

How old is she? My daughter, who is almost 4 now, did the same thing for a while. She didn't attempt to hit me though. I asked her why she called me by my first name and she said "cause everyone else does." I just told her, yes that's right that everyone else does, but since I am her mom, she can call me mom. I told her it's special that her and her siblings can call me mom, and she has never called me by my first name again.
