Is it my child or is it me?
My wife and I are having a hard time with our independent 5 year old daughter. I feel like I'm always getting on my child for being disobedient, not thoughtful, rude, etc. She doesn't come off as 5 to us - but more like a teenager that has to argue with most things we say and does what she wants regardless of our instruction. We find that we're getting frustrated with her so much and correcting her non-stop. We love her a lot and when she came to me a few times in the past couple weeks and said "I'm sorry I'm always bad daddy, I don't know how to be good." It really breaks my heart because she really is a good child. Maybe we aren't picking our battles well? Would welcome any helpful thoughts or comments on this. 🙂
