DD 3.8yrs, always been a handful but generally a lively happy girl. BUT, we have just come through the whinging stage, which still rears its ugly head now and again (how bloody hard was that) to be confronted with constant bloody defiance.

It is such flaming hard work (and I never thought anything would be harder than the whinging, which, lets face it is SOUL destroying!). Everything I ask she says no, or screamns or just carries on what she is doing.

I am dealing with it, but I so need to know there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Tis a stage, and as with all things, so too will this pass.

<calming vibes>

Ignore, distract, praise; you are doing a great job, have a glass of wine and put your feet up tonight.

Been there with daughter now 5 1/2. It will end ... but something else comes along instead!! At least it's not sex, drugs & rock and roll.. yet!!
Seriosly, just try to stick to your guns and pick your battles - easier said than done I know!!
