I'm new here. It seems every single day my five year old daughter and I argue over everything from brushing her teeth in the morning all the way to going to bed by herself at night. I lose my patience very quickly and snap at her and then I feel very guilty the rest of the day. She is a daddy's girl and they have a wonderful relationship and it seems the only time I can get her to listen is if I threaten to tell her father how she is behaving. I'm just starting to worry about when she is older if it will continue this way. I love her strong personality and her independence, I just need to figure out how to respond to her when she starts acting up before I get to the point of snapping at her.
