Does your 9-yr-old....
Have crying tantrums in public? NO.
"Talk back" or mutter at you under his/her breath when he/she gets in trouble (putting him/herself in deeper trouble)?No.
Have to be told multiple times to brush hair, brush teeth, get dressed, or perform a chore? Yes
Talk constantly? Sometimes. She DOES want a lot of time with me and has a lot to say and a lot of observations.
"Know" everything? No.
I am so tired of trying to correct my daughter on little things, because she makes a big deal about it, so the situation escalates, and then I get called a "MEAN MOM!" Wondering if I should let more things go as normal behavior for her age.
