My 6 yr old daughter is incredibly hyper and confident in many areas but is very testing and emotional about life. She’s recently started developing a teenager attitude and just not listening so, as you can imagine, life is rather frustrating!

My issue is I’ve no idea how to affectively discipline as she either ignores me or hysterically cries. Tonight she was wailing in bed about how she hates her life and how she’s awful and that was off the back of me being tough on bedtime and her constantly messing around and not listening. Is she just trying to pull a swift one or is she being damaged by me trying to discipline her!!

Answers on a postcard!!
