My daughter Lora is almost 7 (Halloween). She is basically a "daddys" girl, but I am the one who is with her 90% of the time. Dad does live in the home with us, but he is always doing this or that or going here or there, so Lora doesnt get a whole lot of time with him. It seems like lately she has been purposely doing things that get me into trouble. For instance, she knows that she is to brush her teeth every night before she goes to bed. So I am telling her to get up and brush her teeth before she falls asleep, daddy is going to yell at me if you dont. Do you think she gets up to brush them? NO! I must had told her at least 7-8 times before she finally did and that was only because I got up with her. She is old enough to brush her teeth without me standing over her. You would have to see it to understand what Im saying. But it just seems that she has this little dark side to her that if Im not good or give her what she wants or what she wants to do, then Im in trouble. And that trouble ranges any where from cold shoulders to straight up ignoring but not until after I have gotten yelled at. He treats me like Im stupid and dont know what I am doing. I love my daughter with all my heart but when is enough enough?
