My daughter is 7 years old and seems to find a way to get into things that don't belong to her. She breaks things and tries to hide them in her bedroom. I know that if I am missing something I can find it in her room, hopefully still like I left it. I have spanked her in the past and she would plead with me saying, " I won't do it again." Well she goes right back the next day and does the same thing. Obviously spanking is not the best form of discipline at this point. I have read some research that it is fruitless. So I am going to stop wasting my energy. My question is what are you all doing that works to discipline your kid? I have tried to take away things she likes but that doesn't work. I try to calm down and not make it into a screaming match but that is sometime unavoidable. It also concerns me that she lies about things and goes through periods of rage ( almost demonic like fits). I am a Registered Nurse and I worry about what is physically going on in her body. Those fits cant be good for her blood pressure. I am going to devote my time to researching all I can about this disease. I have a 16 year old daughter that I have been through this with already. She did the same thing and nothing every worked with disciplining her. She grew out of it the older she got but it was a tough time for both of us. I am praying my 2 year old does not have ADHD or I am going to pull my hair out.
