O.k., so a co-worker once told me that four is worse than two...which as my oldest nears the four year mark, I am finding this to be true. Any suggestions on how to deal and teach my daughter how her attitude affect others would be wonderful!

At 4 time out is your best friend. Does she go to school? I know my daughter was picking up some nasty stuff at school and found out who the lil girl was that was the trouble maker. And at 4 they are sponges more so then 2. They repeat not only what they hear but what they see. You just have to remain standing with your rules and put her in time out when needed.

Yes, we are doing the time out thing and you are totally right about being a sponge at that age. Daddy said a not so nice word the other night and well it was repeated quite a few times. Luckily we were able to explain that Daddy was wrong and we shouldn't say that and she shouldn't either...some times I think he is our biggest offender with his habits. She hasn't started school yet, but does go to daycare where she does socialize with other children, I should look into that. Thanks for the reassurance and advise, some times you just don't know if you are doing the right thing or not.
