I am 20, have a 2 year old daughter who will be 3 in august and am 7 months pregnant. My fiance and i just moved to a town far from our hometown and are renting a room from some family members. We both work, i work part time 4 days a week from 2-8 and he works 12 hour shifts starting qt 7 am about 5 days a week. With all those details out of the way, let me tell you about my daughter.
She is a very smart child. Sh learns quickly and has always learned faster than other kids her age. I love that about her but with that, she is also very hyper and defiant. Wr dont give her candy. No soda just some natural apple juice or stuff like that but she never stops. She is always doing something. She cries for cartoons and then when theyre on shell roam about the room and grab things she shouldnt. Its always a struggle at nighttime. Nothing works. Baths, stories, cartoons, cuddles, turning off all the lights... nothing. She cries and throws fits and just keeps at it all night long until like 2 am.... it doesnt matter what time she wakes up either. When i tell her to do things and she doesnt agree she talks back and yells or throws things. She hardly
ever listens the first time i tell her to do things and she always backtalks. When my fiance is around she listens to what he says no questions asked and she wont talkback. Its only with me or shell misbehave around him only when other people are around. All he has to do is be stern with her and shell listen but even when i tap her bottom shell laugh in my face. Idk what to do with her anymore. Pediatrician says shes fine and doesnt need meds for hyperactivity. I always was against saying kids are bad, just misbehaved but she is slowly changing mymind. Im going to have another baby soon and until we are fully settled and have saved enough to move we are going to be sharing this room. Im tired. Im stressed and im bummed out. Idk what to do with her anymore.... please help.
