She is my only child, and with how things are going, she might be my last. It seems every little thing is a battle...What she wears, eats, how we even play dolls. I have to lay with her until she falls asleep, which can often take hours. She is a very loving child, but her fits and controlling behavior suck the joy out of our time together. It has also torn my husband and I apart. I feel little support and despair. Any advice would be appreciated. I keep waiting for this "phase" to pass...I have been waiting for 2.5 years. I can't help but feel like I am failing as a mother.
