"What are you doing to modify her behavior other than fending off the attacks? What is provoking the attacks? "
Seeking information again, and using the term "attacks" because that was the term the poster herself used.
"Frankly, this is not in my estimation the behavior of a functioning, healthy family."
My opinion only.
"The three of you must be completely miserable with things as you've described them."
An assumption based on the description of hairpulling, testicle-jumping, etc. Perhaps I am projecting.
I meant no offense. I feel nothing but empathy for those among us who struggle with the difficulties of childrearing.
Best of luck, and welcome to MDC.
