I WANT TO SCREAM!!!! Kari (8) IS SO RUDE AND SUCH A B****!!!!! The doctors say it's a common problem with TS. NO awareness. No respect. Can't even remember what she just did or said. She's upstairs right now grounded to her bed. She's screaming and crying and all I want to do is go up there and tell her to SHUT UP (again). Right now, I hate being a mom. I just want to hide in a hole. I was upstairs, she was down. We are prepping to move (next door). I asked her what she was doing and she said she was "playing with my private thing, with my personal thing that I got from the place." ????? I asked, "What private, personal thing?" There are tons of those things, she has a little sister, so many things are separated as "Kari-only". She said, "I didn't say 'private, personal.'" "Kari, WHAT thing?" She kept harping on the private, personal part, getting ruder and ruder, abstinate, arrogant. I tried to talk to her, tried to keep my calm, but she was getting ruder my the second. I ask her to come over to me so we can talk easier (vs up/down stairs). She'd take a couple steps. By the time I made her come all the way up the stairs, I was yelling. And she STILL was harping on that DAMN "private, personal"!!!!!! I sent her to her room. She slammed the dog gate on me as she went past. And was even ruder (was that possible???). Change of plans - TIME OUT (that's worse for her). Anyways.... it got worse, worse, worse.... I ended up spanking her!!!! I don't spank!!! I'm at my wit's end. I'm afraid I'm starting to hate my own daughter. I don't know what to do. My Mom just brought them home, they slept at her place last night. She was complaining to me about her rude, bossy behavior this morning. I know they say she doesn't understand, that the absolute lack of awareness is the TS, but..... I don't know what to do.
