So my 3 year old daughter has developed quite the attitude. She thinks it's okay to hit and has even gotten in my face. I don't know what to do. She thinks time out is funny and all spanking does is hurt her. I don't ant to hit because I don't think it teaches her how to behave and I'm not good at controlling the force behind the blow. My son is 10 months old and doesn't want to sleep in his crib. Lately, he's been crying himself to sleep even though I'm holding him. He will do that for half an hour or so. I am overwhelmed and having trouble balancing life with kids.
I'm not sure about your daughter, maybe try what Kim said and talk to her about it. Explain why it's not good.
If you want more information, I would read "Raise your kids without raising your voice." I can't say I have reached that level where I never raise my voice - I definitely do at times - but this gave me lot of good strategies that I've been employing for years.
