Re: Parenting the 5 year old attitude

I'm caving and calling her doctor. If nothing else, perhaps the doctor will give us a referral and dd can talk to a psychologist about whatever recent change is bothering her. But nothing we are doing is helping at all; it's just getting worse. Earning rewards, taking things away, monitoring her diet....nothing is helping. She doesn't want to talk to me or dh. She won't even talk to my mom or my sister, and she's very close to both of them.

She's getting more violent with me and she's starting to get violent towards dh. Her behavior the other day made my husband cry. In the almost 7 years we've been married, I've seen him cry one other time (when a close friend died.)

She even threatened to slap her brother across the face the other day >.< I just don't get it. At this point, all of us need help
