My 6 yo daughter has just gotten to me so bad that I am at witts end. It doesn't matter what I say irwhat I ask her ti do, I GET A FULL BLOWN ARGUMENTOR WHINE SESSION. I have tried everything. It Iis taking everything I have not to sbap or smack her across the face. I am a young mother, but I am a good one. I make sure she has everything she needs and try to get her everything she wants but this year I havent bought her a single toy or extra because we can't end one good or halfway good day. Now I know she is 6 and were gonna have teating the waters and some rough roads but OMG....It is like she is never happy, never satisfied.It is always a battle. PLEASE help. This little girl is my life, I want a happy. Child, but I know it is more important to have a respectful one, than a happy one.

you are not the only one! my little girl (5) does the same thing screams at me, argues, cries... over the littlest thing other day 25 minute fit over me putting her in a shirt instead of a dress... i think like everyone says its a phase its a terrible one but it will pass! try to step away into another room, show no reaction and walk away... i put mine in her room and walk out until she calms down then i go back.. also i started taking things away from her she likes ( laptop, books, toys ext.. it helps majorly

Hi, I no how you feel at times, I have a 7 and 5 year old and my 7 year old went through this at about the same age. I tried all sorts with her as in trying to get her to be good for rewards and things like that. I think it must just be the age as they are starting to find out from school that there option matters and should be listen to and how to be independent. So when they get back they think they can say and do what they won't.

I found the best way was to just sit down and talk about how there feeling maybe she is worried about something so she takes it out on you all the time. She might not no how to deal with the new situations at school as i found it a jump from reception to year 1. I spoke to my daughter but also I explained how her actions made me feel as well as her telling me how she felt about me shouting at her all the time. Or try and get her to wright down how she feels if she doesn't wont to talk.
Hope this helps!
It won't last forever. :-)
