I have a 5 yr old daughter who is extremly strong willed and very mean. Everything she does has to be a challenge from brushing teeth and hair, getting dressed, putting socks on, deciding what to wear. We allow her to do things on her own and if she needs help she will yell at us to do it now. I am at my wits end - she is pulling the fun out of having children. What is so rewarding about a child who is constantly screaming, yelling and getting upset at you. I have tried the time outs, taking things away, not going somewhere, talking to her, trying to help her etc.....NOTHING works. There has been no big changes in our house so there is nothing to put blame on it. I also have an 8 yr old son who the complete opposite of her. I cannot deal with this anymore - I need some help and suggestions. PLEASE i am desperate......
