So my beautiful daughter will be turning 5 in the next week and here lately we have been having horrible disciplinary problems with her. She is purposely defiant and it seems that no matter what techniques we use with her nothing works! My husband (her step father) and I recently got married back in November. She loves her step father as if he was her biological dad. She sees her biological dad still but not very often. We are trying to figure out if it something we are doing as parents but everyone we talk to tells us we are doing the right things with her. She will look us straight in the face and tell us "no" when we tell her to do something & we will either put her in timeout or make her stand in the corner. We have also gotten to the point where we will send her to her room and not allow to play with any of her toys. I am not big on spanking but I feel like this is the onyl option I have left. Anyone have any similar issues or have had similiar issues in the past & have any advice on what we can do to correct it? Also, she is great in school and never gets in trouble so we are baffled!
