hi i am having some serious anger issues with my eight year old daughter , shes always had a temper but in the last few months it has got worse .
the slightest thing can set her off and she rages , throws things , calls everyone horrible names , and lashes out , my partner and i have tried everything from time out , to denying her favourite things , and yes even a smack , but this didnt help but was at the end of my tether.
today she raged so bad i couldnt stand it and left her with her dad and went to my mums , we have tried talking to her to see if anything is making her angry but she just says she cant help it , its particulary bad with her brother, she hits and kicks him without warning.
i have spoken to her teacher as she is good at school but this doesnt seem to have helped much , we are at our wits end , is anybody else experiencing this , and what do we do ??? from a stressed out mum of a beautiful but fiesty dd x
