I am a single mom. My spouse left us me and my daughter a couple of months back. My daughter has been the pampered with a nanny since she was born. Now her nanny wants to quit which is ok for me but my daughter is too spoilt. She is so used in giving orders, someone to feed and bath her etc. I am working mom and have to earn extra now since her dad refuse to pay child support. Please advise me on how to communicate to my daughter and encourage her to start being a bit responsible. I know she is a bit traumatized loosing her dad and nanny months apart.

Your situation sounds tough. Maybe try going to family counselling? If that isn't possible, maybe try framing what is happening as an adventure to be greeted with curiosity. Also expose your daughter to children who aren't as spoilt as her. This will help to normalise her situation thus reducing her stress. I hope these suggestions are of help to you.
