check her out and run tests and say she was colic but she never spit up or had issues with eating ever. When she turned a yr the crying slowed down but her attitude was terrible. Most of the time too. She just acts like she hates life. She doesn't want to act right in a store or resturant, I've tried disipline in so many different ways. We had an apple tree and if her and her sister kept all thier apples they got to get a piece of candy or a sticker out of the treasure chest box. Carly would rarily get to choose something from the treasure chest and she wouldn't even care. I've tried time outs, taking things away and I've actually spanked her, and I've never spanked ever and I have 3 daughters! nothing works, she acts however she wants but when she's being good and sweet it's almost as if she's being fake. It's like split personalities. Her doctor says she''' start doing tests this next appt but it's not like she's ADHD or ADD or anything, she's normal, she just has a bad foul attitude. And on top of it, she has this weird thing with choosing what she wears, what shirt what bottoms, what panties and what shoes! If I choose and it looks cute she changes, if I let her choose and it's cute she changes, and not just once, 2, 3 or even 5 times before she finally wears something. Then when you think I've got my hands full she has noght terrors to top it all off. She screams and thrashes and seems to be in pain and never wakes up, and she can't be woke up either. And the more I try to help and comfort her the worse it gets, I just hold her tight so she doesn't hurt herself until she stops and goes back to a screamless sleep. And what's even more weird is that today I found out that my friends son is exactly the same way and has been since birth! Night terrors and all, bad attitude, drives her crazy, has to change and choose his clothes. Does anyone have any advice any similar storys an answer, anything??? It seems too odd to be a coincedence, please help!
