Help , how to discipline an 9 year old girl
Am frustrated to the point I regret why I had this child .
She is so adamant . She don’t want to brush her teeth . Even if she brush , the white plaques can be seen in her front teeth .
When I ask her to brush again , only to end up in a stand-off for 1 hour and still I was not successful. All the while
Husband being a silent spectator either watching tv / phone – while I toil myself preparing breakfast / lunch
And when time comes to eating – she wants me to spoon feed her . If I don’t spoon feed , she won’t eat . If she eat by herself- then she will pick out the spinach and curry and only eat white rice !!!!
When it comes to study : she don’t want to try .
Next week the school starts and she will have checkpoint and revision . I have all the practice questions printed out and ready , yet this brat is not ready to sit down .
I just don’t know . I wish there is some boarding school for kids – to discipline them . Someone please help . Am lost.
- If she don’t want to eat, don’t eat. If she don’t want to study, let her fail. She needs to learn about actions and consequences.
- Need to bring her to check if she is under adhd spectrum. If not, you can find a kid therapist to check if there is some hidden psychological issues which she is unable to verbalize through words.
- There is a thing called cane
