I would like to know how you Mummies punish your children.
I keep being told I’m easy going on my daughter. But I’m just frightened of scaring or upsetting her. She died when she was 2 days old which is one reason I hold her a lot closer than others would perhaps. But I also lived with an abusive Father and don’t want my daughter to EVER live through that kind of thing.
She is VERY naughty though. She refuses to listen to a word I say. If I do not give in and give her what she wants, she screams, hits, kicks, bites, throws things and even hurts her Nanna. I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried talking firmly, smacking on the bum, yelling, taking toys away, sitting her in time out, no tv. I won’t smack hard at all and thats where people are telling me i’m doing wrong. I only give a light tap, literally nothing at all…
I don’t know what else to do to get her attention and understand she has to listen to Mummy. I even get down to her level and attempt to talk things through with her. But she just slaps me in the face or turns away and wont listen.
(She is ADHD and suspected Aspergers)
