I'm going through a really rough time with my daughter. She is 5 years old and is well behaved at home, she occasionally whines for things or is disobedient but for the most part shes a good kid. She is an only child and I am a single parent, she hasnt seen her father in about three years. For some reason or another when she goes to school she turns into another child, a child I have never seen with my eyes and a child that is so hard to believe is mine. She has been in Kindergarten now for approx. 3 months and has had about 5 or more office referrals. As we speak she is on a one day suspension for kicking two administrators when they tried to get her to go willingly to the office. She is disrespectful towards her teacher and other adults at school as well as the other children. This is so hard for me to talk about because I keep questioning my parenting but I continue to try new discipline with her and nothing seems to be working. This is a very serious issue and I'm so perplexed as what to do. I finally made an appt. with a child physchologist. I am very spiritual and believe in the higher power of God. I'd like to think of myself as a hard working, dedicated, young single mother. I have received my Bachelor's degree at the age of 23 reagrdless of getting pregnant directly out of high school and having her at the young age of 19. Im stuck at a very difficult time in my life and finally decided to console someone (which is you!). I have a lot of friends or co workers but no one I can confide with on this situation. I know every child is different but its so hard for me to understand why me? Why is my child so misbehaved? Shes the only child in the classroom who had to be put on a behavior contract very early into the year. I always praise her and remind her of the importance of making good choices. When it comes to ADD/ADHD I am very ignorant and quite frankly I would hate to have to put my child on any type of medication for that at such a young age. Well this is a basic overview of my story, any care to comment or offer any type of advice or parental recommendations? Thank you and God Bless.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
