I really need some help and advice with my daughter who is 7 going on 21! She is my oldest and in 2nd grade. She is a tiny little shy girl who is very loving.
The last few months she has been very mean and rude and a lot of back talk. Time outs are not working and we have moved to grounding her. Which I hate but hey. She might be grounded for 1 night and that means no toys or tv and must stay upstairs.
She will no longer help around the house and yells at me and says she hates me. The teacher says there is nothing going on in class and she says the playground helpers don't see anything. But I am worried.
It's getting to be a lot. She is very mean and I don't know where it is coming from. We are not mean in anyway. We don't spank or hit and no bad words are used.
What else can I do? Anyone have any trouble with this? Do I need to be more forcefull? I am going to be talking to the Dr because this is just not like her.
