Dh and I really need some help with our just turned 9 year old.
She has always been a spirited child.
We really think that we need some kind of family counselling, but unfortunately our insurance does not offer "mental health" and we cannot pay for it out of pocket.
So our next best idea is for us to read up on some strategies, pick some that will fit our situation and try to implent them to help us parent our daughter better.
Her behaviour is really out of control. The way that she talks to everyone, is really disrecpectful, she flys off the handle at everything, and just generally makes life quite miserable for us all.
She is a very sweet child, compassionate and loving underneath that intense exterior. She does not behave this way at school, or at others houses, just when she is at home with us, she really lets it all hang out.
We need some help figuring this out, from other parents who have been there, done that, and had success with certain books or strategies.
Thanks for reading, and we are anxiously awaiting suggestions :)
