I have a wonderful 3 year old who is amazing. She is sometimes to smart for her own good though.



Lately she has been difficult. I can tell her to not do something and explain why and then she will turn around and do it with a "haha" attitude. DRIVES me nuts!



I have tried takings things away like going to park, tv, game night (her adad and I plays a SPECIAL game with her sat and sun), even letting her sleep with her stuffed animals. I have tried the corner and time out and still nothing.



I have spanked before HATE to do it and would like ANOTHER option since even then it made her wimper and then she was back to it all.



I try to talk to her and she will sit there and stare right past me and not acknowledge i exist. I have no idea what else to do,,,,





HELP! ADVICE!

I would try ignoring her. Seems to me she's looking for attention and getting it *my son tried this a few months ago. What I did was ignore him and would talk to the dog, cat anyone but him. When he was good, or at least behaivng better I would speak to him and we would discuss things and find fun things to do. If nothing else it reinforces good behaviour (good behaviour gets good rewards).
