I really was just not sure where to post this, but I am struggling SOOOOOO much with DD lately. I don't like complaining about my kids, especially since there are lots of people who just seem to think all my problems with her would just vanish if I disciplined properly...which, let's face it, is a whole other story since everyone thinks their way is the best way.
I guess most of the problem is just the constant unhappiness that seeps out of her. She has issues with everything, whines over everything, is rude about everything and about 100 times a day just screams at the top of her lungs for absolutely no reason. Everything bothers her: her clothes, loud noises, dropping something on the ground, her shoes being uncomfortable, she can't find something, her hair is in her face, she got her shirt wet, she thinks her underwear are wet and need to be changed if she feels just one drop on them, the list goes on and on and on.
I try so hard to be patient, but I feel it slipping. My own mother who is constantly telling ME to be more patient is now losing patiences with her. I just don't know what to do. I'm beginning to think there is really something wrong because this child just cries and whines all day long. Any ideas of what it could be? I hate throwing labels on kids, but I'm really at the end of my rope here!
