My daughter is six and in that obnoxious phase. But hers seems to be a little worse than usual. I'm struggling with treating her kindly, as are her siblings and schoolmates. I seem to use up all my patience with her personality quirks so when she DOES do something wrong, I'm so frazzled I just blow up. Not good. She isnt badly behaved, and its not like I don't understand my kids will be different, and sure its a phase, but how do I help her when shes making everyone she likes avoid her? Or flat out treat her badly?
