I am new here. I've been looking around and reading others comments and things already and have picked up some ideas. I have 2 children. A 4 year old little boy and a 2 year old daughter. My son is pretty laid back and always has been. His behavior is good and manageable. My daughter on the other hand is the exact opposite. She is high maintenance and is completely out of control. She doesn't listen to anything to I tell her. I mean she literally does the exact opposite of everything I tell her. She hits other kids, screams "no" to me and other adults, tells you she's not doing that etc.. I will be the first to admit that I am not consistent. I let her slide with things until I can't take it anymore then I start screaming and swatting her hiney.It's like I'm afraid I'm being mean or something by being on her all the time,until I've had enough.I know this behavior is my fault I just don't know how to correct it.I am working really hard on not screaming though. She is so sweet when she wants to be. I just feel I am inexperienced,because I had to do so little with my son and didn't have a very good example. We were terrible too when we were children and my mother just screamed and screamed and it went in one ear and right out the other. I would really apreciate any advice for me I am desperate here and ready to make a change.
