Hi to all mothers,
I'm having some issues with my 10-year old daughter. At the age of 5 she was discovered as a high-gifted child with an IQ of 133. She jumped 1 school year at because she is really smart. She is now on her last year of elementary.This year in September, she will be going to high school.Those are the positive points....
The less positive is SHE IS REALLY LAZY. I am a single mother, busy sustaining our living but even then I tried to do my best to be a good mother and raise my daughter accordingly. I talk to her constantly about simple things, like: grooming. I told her to take a full shower at least 3x a week,comb her hair properly because she has long hair and i'm not allowed to help her...She must take her lunch box out of her schoolbag everyday(somtimes i discover that she still have 2 or 3 empty boxes inside). ..and she needs to clean up her room and make her own bed....and she has to dress properly,but she keep wearing the same clothes until i say she should change.She always complain if i ask her to help dry the dishes or bring her to the grocery store.I think I have a very lazy daughter:( If I say things in a slow and nice way,she just ignore me.I need to raise my voice at the point that i am already pissed off then she do things but in such undesirable manner.She often told me that I'm a perfectionist mother,but i'm so frar from being one.I just want her to lean the simple things in life.but she let me feel that i'm a bad mother.,,that i don't give her the right to be a child."I'm just a kid",she always anwer me.
One more thing,she doesn't study.She still have good grades but her teacher say that if if she only studies like the others do,she could get 95% or even higher.Is this normal for some 10-year old girls?Is there a chance that she will learn to do things properly at the right time?.Please help me.I'm just really concearn about my little girl.I love her so much but she gives me stress every day.Thank you in advance
