My daughter has been an absolute nightmare the last few days. Hitting, kicking, screaming, and such a bad attitude!
My partner does nothing to help and I am just over it, I can’t deal with it much longer
I’ve tried every form of discipline I can think of and nothing works
Arghhh!

  • Has she had a change in diet? A change in surroundings? Something hapoen outside of the home, school or daycare? Positive note, most kids things are phases, I hope this one passes soon

  • Sounds like a tough time. Have you tried to find a source for her behaviour ? Maybe something has happened to her? Maybe you’ve introduced a new food she’s having a bad reaction to? Is she getting enough sleep? Just a couple of maybes to try

  • This was posted a while ago, hope you managed to sort everything out.

  • My LO can have her moments. I don’t want to be a bitch, but maybe take her to the doctor to see if she has ADHD. It might be why it’s an intermittent thing.
    Otherwise for me, I explain firmly to my LO that her behaviour is unacceptable and I am not happy with her. Then I take her firmly by the hand and put her in time out for 1 min. After 1 min I explain why her behaviour was unacceptable. I find that carrying on will make her behaviour worse. Good luck

  • It is certainly stressful – my son is the same – quite angry. How old is your daughter?

  • How old is she now?

  • What age is your daughter? Has there been any changes to her life recently, such as a new school, or sibling? Usually they do it to get our attention, and sometimes ignoring her actions, although hard I know, may show her it’s unacceptable behaviour.

  • I am sorry for you but it’s hard to comment as i don’t know very much, how old is your daughter? Could she be teething? Is she unwell? Has someone upset her or hurt her in some way? Or is she just having a bad mood session. Do hope she is better now.

  • Can you ignore her, does that work? or maybe she needs strong rules, early to bed with no TV? (this works with my 9 year old girl)

  • Maybe take a look at what sort of things are changing for your child. Generally when they are agitated and angry, they are transitioning, changing and developing new skills. Depending on their age, try talking with her. Asking her what is wrong and to try and express her feelings in another way ie. Drawing, being polite, cuddles, quiet play etc.


    • Nothing has been any different lately
      She was just horrible for 2-3 days and now today she was fine again

  • yep it so hard when they carry on. try time out and see if that helps

  • Do you get other family support? I know with my kids, sometimes if their grandparents tell them off and it often works.


    • I have my mum sometimes but she isn’t much help
      My daughter won’t listen to her either anyway
      I feel like I have nowhere else to turn
