My daughter is about 2 and a half, but is extremely smart (I know they are all smart) but Scarlett is different. She can spell almost any word you ask, is beginning to read and write and can draw people (yes it looks like people) her memory capabilities are astounding, so much so her pediatrician is completely baffled and amazed by her. She is basically the working brain of a 5 or 6 year old, in a 2 year olds body and temperment. However, lately she has been out of control. Now I know some people are saying, what is out of control to me may not be out of control to you. The other day she told me " Pick up your shit Mom" She has tried strangling her little brother, who she loves more than anything and considers her own baby. And when she loses her temper it is colossal. Time out will result in holes in the wall and furniture damaged. I do not know what to do with her anymore. She has learned how to out smart all her old disciplines and I work full time and do not have time to come up with new ones, and teach them to Dad and Nana (who has a daycare my kids go to while I work) Any suggestions? Or am I just totally making this into too big a deal?
