I have three children, and it's only obvious that they all have different personalities. However, my 5 year old daughter has been testing my husband and me for quite some time now. She deliberately disobeys us (but not in a taunting way) at the most crutial points of the day like getting ready for school and getting ready for bed. For the first few months we have been patient and explained our reasons for the rules, and tasks. Now I'm bearly holding on by a thread. I truly don't think she does it to be bad, because she is so loving. I don't know how much more of this i can take. She also does things that she KNOWS are against the rules. Our other children know when to quit testing, but she doesn't seem to.
