Let's be real, if you have kids, you probably have had some type of behavioral issue with them sometime in their little lives. I am having a serious crisis with my Gracie. She is 4 but I swear she acts like she is 14. Let me tell you this, she has a heart of gold and loves with all of her heart BUT she is stubborn, hard headed, rude, and very LAZY!
I do not make the child work like a slave but I do ask her to please clean up after herself. I also ask her to put her clothes up. We fight on a daily basis about this, usually multiple times per day. I am at my whits end and I really am not sure what to do. I do believe I know what the issue is but at this point there is nothing I can do about it. I think she is annoyed being here with me TWENTY FOUR SEVEN. I can totally understand this, because she does fantastic with other people and listens so well. I have tried every form of discipline from spanking to time out to taking things away. IT. DOES. NOTHING. When she starts school next year I really do believe she will actually miss me and want to be good and listen. I love that girl and her brother with every ounce of my being and I just want her to be happy and sweet.
Please pray that we can figure out some sort of way to help with this. Today has been a rough one. Being a Stay At Home Mom is TOUGH. Tougher than any job I have ever had, wanna know why? Because these are OUR babies we are taking care of and we want the absolute BEST for them, so when they make mistakes and act out, we blame ourselves and look for what we could do different to help them.
I know I am a tough mom but I think that is important and what's right. AH. Sorry to rant so much I just feel....so....frustrated.
This sums it up.
