Hi there
I will try help, I have three kids and my youngest is also 7. I had to look that word up as in S.A. we don't use that word . Any way I have had the same rule with my kids, I do not give power to bad behavior. I don't even get angry. Are you thirsty,hungry,tired,sick,in pain? No okay no nonsense my babes.... I just smile and say, love ya hun, but until you come back and tell me nicely what is wrong, you are welcome to sulk in the corner. You are missing out on some fun, but if its okay with you I am fine with it. Also sometimes I realize that they need attention and so maybe before you go out somewhere make sure she gets enough quality time with you.
As I say each child is different,
All the Best! Cath
