Single Mom needs help

Stephanie J - posted on 12/30/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am a single mother of a bright 8 year old daughter. I feel as I have lost my home to my daughters out of control behaviour.She stomps when she is angry, when she doesn't get her own way, throws things, breaks things.. I feel so terrible for my neighbours because they can hear her outbursts and it seems she causes a disturbence. I am at my breaking point because the last person she listens to is me. I have done the rule charts, reward charts and it seems like nothing works. The moment she is rewarded, she acts right back up. Any advice?. On to the second thing. I have taught my daughter responciblity with keeping her room tidy,house cleaning and meal preping. I am consistent with my daily rutine.She refuses to do anything for herself. Even to get dressed. Make her own breakfast .....Help!!!!!

Have you talked with her teachers to see what kind of behavior she is demonstrating at school? Talked to her pediatrician? She may need some help working through whatever issues are making her so angry. Have YOU spoken to her about what is wrong? She sounds very emotional to me. Almost hormonal?
