this morning she woke up earlier than normal and wanted me to get up right away with her and then began to kick me in the back. My husband told her she needed to get out of the bed if she was going to kick so he helped her out of the bed the second time she kicked and she spent about 10 minutes crying and trying to get back in and my husband told her she needed to apologize. She goes to day care 2 days a week one week and 3 days the next. they are long days and she has been going since she was very young. I do wonder if the long days and being around different influences is and has been part of our problem. I feel she does not get enough sleep most days. she has never slept through the night and on days she is home with me she usually will not nap unless I drive her around. at school she sleeps an hour and a half.
lately she will not let me do her hair or help her pick out anything to wear. the other day it did not even reach 60 degrees and she wore a sun dress to school. On Wed. she has gymnasticts and we had to get out of the house and she still was not dressed. I decided I would try to dress her against her will which did not feel right at all and a few seconds after she was dressed she undressed herself. I told her that I needed to get out of the house and I was going to go outside. Next thing she said was wait for me mommy and got dressed and we went to her class. but the anger and emotion to get to that point is aweful. Myself and my husband have been yelling at her and this is not what I want for her. for the first time, recently I have been having her sit on a thinking stool for about 1 minute because I do not know what else to do. I feel like she has all the control and her behavior has been very difficult.
Sorry so long. Please help
