Hi all, I'm new to this 😬 I have 3 kids, 14,9 and 5! My 5 year old is very demanding all the time, she's still very clingy and hates being told no, and constantly nags and gets very frustrated and cries over the smallest things, it probably sounds like nothing but honestly it's a constant battle with her, just looking for advice to avoid all the drama everyday!? Thank you

I was thinking the older siblings.

But when you say, if you stop behaving like that I won't put you to bed early, do you follow through with having her go to be early?

Quite honestly, I'd be having her go to her room until she can come out and act like a human being.

Yes Sarah she does make a big deal about over how things feel, like socks if they feel funny she will have a net down about it,

A weird question......is she sensory sensitive? Does she not like certain things, make a big deal how something feels?

No me and my husband stick to what we say, if it's a no then that's it, I do say, if you stop behaving like that then I won't put you to bed early! But even then she will keep going on and on!

Is there someone in the house that generally gives in to her because it gets so annoying that it is easier to give in to shut her up?
