It all started yesterday morning. I won't go through the list- but at every turn around my 6 year old decided to disobey- disregard- and disrespect. She was punished. At a last resort attempt at showing her I meant business, I banned her from 'play time' during our Kindermusik session. This is huge.
There are friends for both her and Zoe to play with at Kindermusik while Leah and I sing our gay little songs. They get their own room. Their own play stuff. It's the highlight of their week during K-Musik Sessions.
So- she sat in the room with us. With a book. And had to just..... sit. For 45 minutes.
And later than night- she continued in her disobedience.
And this morning- it is STILL going on.
Today- she is cleaning. The whole. entire. day. Clean. Clean. School. School. NO PLAY. With words of instrucion that state: "It's important to obey. You must follow directions. You are giving away your play time because of your behavior." (Why are you so mean? Why can't I get a break? Why would you punish me for 'forgetting' to obey??) And I reply "It's your choice to disobey. It's your choice to be punished. If you can't remember the rules- this should help you."
And she STILL continues to disobey. Taking my cell phone- and hiding it under a dresser in the office. Spraying the TV with bleach. Arguing. Whining. Complaining....... and so on.
I'm at a loss. It's making me frustrated. My hands are in the air.... UGH!!!
Joshua says she is 'rebelling' against me. I concur. I just wish it wasn't TRUE.
SIX-YEARS-OLD!!! And the rebelling is starting.
What. Should. I. DO???????/
