My daughter is 8, and does nothing but argue with me give me attitude dirty looks and moans about anything and everything she is mean to her 3yr old brother always hurting him and making up games where it involves being verbally or physically abusive towards him, I tell her off for the things that she does wrong ( which feels like all of the time at the min) and she skips off laughing or just plain ignores me and carries on with what she is doing then when there are concequences for her actions I get arguments throwing things around slamming doors , I'm just so emotionally and physically drained because of her to the point of tears , my partner works all day from 8-4 so doesn't see the half of it and her dad who she sees regular doesn't see any of it , I'm so frustrated nothing is working to stop this behaviour and I feel so alone , as horrible a it sounds I look forward to her going to her dads coz when she isn't here I'm not so stressed,upset or depressed ,please can anyone help or advise me I'm desperate , I do suffer with depression and I am taking tablets for this but everyday with her just feels like a battle and I just concentrate on getting through the day, then I feel guilty for feeling and thinking like this and my 3yr old son hardly gets any attention from me no to mention he is beginning to copy the way she is with me I just don't know what to do anymore
