my problem is, that my DD, who is 5, is showing more and more aggressive behaviour, she is hitting, pushing, bossy with other kids, as much that her friends don´t want to play with her anymore. She has outbursts if thinks don´t work out her way or if something happened that she did not like, for example if someone opened here pudding for her, but she wanted to do it in "a special way".
There is a lot going on in our life at the minute, she had to change her childcare center and is missing her friends there, but appears to be overall quite allright with the new one, too. It´s only half days now, compared to full days before.
I am pregnant and quite ill, on bedrest and in general not very patient due to pain and discomfort (I try very hard), there is someone coming in the afternoons to care for the kids at home. Due to my not being very well, my DH and I fight quite a bit, which obviously needs to stop. easier said than done though. He is making a lot over hours at the moment, that does not help.
there are no grandparents around, who could cover anything.
I think I know where the behaviour comes from, and that she probably needs positive attention, more than she gets right now. I have no idea how to give it to her though.
I have read "How to raise your spirited child" and am working with this as well.
Please give suggestions, I am really sad that my little girl is not getting her needs met!
