Where has my sweet innocent 6 year old gone? The one that was the perfect toddler and would do as I say without any question. Who wouldn’t answer back and wouldn’t smirk behind my back.
This child currently in my house is not my daughter. Someone has swapped her!!
Well if you haven’t guessed by now I will make it clear. Munchkin 1 has turned into a major brat.
So much so that when she said she wanted to go live with my parents I was like fine! And I am sad to say I would feel relieved if she did!!!
She hasn’t left home yet, even though she has said (well written down) that she hates me forever. I wouldn’t let her move anyway.
I have seen a change in her since she started school. However, her behaviour has gotten worse since munchkin 2 arrived. She will not listen to what we say. Take for example, the other day her dad took her shopping. They came home late and both I and my husband told her not to open her magazine and get ready for bed. She went upstairs and immediately opened the magazine.
I tell her off and she smirks. I tell her not to do anything, she will carry on and do it if she can get away with it. I tell her to be quiet and she will proceed to finish what she was initially saying.
She goes and hits my sister. That is my sisters fault as I had told her to stamp on that behaviour but they had found it funny. Well no use complaining about it now is it?! But it is concerning as she will think it is ok to do that to me when she is angry.
My family are the ones that jokingly say to her you can move here if your mum tells you off. Well she has taken it literally and now thinks she can get away with murder because she can always go and move in with the grandparents.
Arrrgggghhh I just want to scream. I do not want to deal with a stroppy 6 year old as well as a newborn who still wants feeding pretty much every 2 hours.
I want to run away!!!
Anyone want 2 kids?!
Since writing this, I have had a written apology from the 6 year old. But she then threatened to throw it in the bin when I took a bangle off her as she was throwing it around!
Any suggestions on the best way to deal with this behaviour?
