Tonight she physically fought me. She got caught at one am, busting in a locked cabinet. I found scissors, and grease in her pillow, some lotion or something all over her face and hair. barbie hair everywhere. I have also a two yr old, and 8 month old twins. My daughter is well aware of the dangers of what’s under the sink coupled with my other younger kids. Busting locked cabinets is a battle I choose to take on for the safety of all.
Because I was upset, I put her in shower, and stripped her bed and cleaned up debris (barbie hair and grease paper). I explained she would get her discipline after her shower. We discipline biblically in our home. Busting cabinet locks is grounds for discipline. Most days time out and redirection is all that’s needed. every two weeks or so she goes crazy for 48 hours until we get to the rules she breaks like harming family members, lying and stealing, busting through locked doors and cabinets.
Tonight she physically fought me when it was time for her discipline. I had to wrestle her to the ground to stop from kicking at least three times. She is 5!!!
I need help, her psychiatrist and therapist are not doing anything.
I don’t know what to do. This could get real ugly as she ages.
