My 6 year old is the sweetest, most helpful little girl... until the stubborn kicks in. I have tried everything i can think of to help this go away, and nothing works. We fight almost constantly. She doesn't want to listen to me most of the time and i'm not sure what else to do with her. I don't want our relationship to be like this forever. If anybody has any helpful tips or advice, it would be GREATLY appreciated.

Honey, you are not alone. I'm struggling with that now with our almost-5-year-old. She's a doll, until she's ticked or doesn't want to do something. She locks in.

I'm trying some of the techniques in "How to Raise Your Spirited Child". It has helped a lot. In fact, I think I'll be looking some stuff up tomorrow.

Sorry I'm not much help, but I wanted you to know you are not alone in this. Hugs.

What would you recommend it have on it? We have tried chore charts and just helpful charts and such and that did not work.
