Well Christopher and I have been struggling to get Kendra to not destroy the nice things that we have. It doesn’t seem to matter what we take away or how many times/ how hard we spank her (yes we spank). It is just not going into her brain. I am not sure if it is just that she is bored and looking for things to do, trying to get our attention, or needs to get rid of some bottled up energy. I have tried keeping her busy, giving her attention, and sending her outside to run to see if this helps and it doesn’t seem to be getting better. I just don’t know what to do. I don’t know what is next if she doesn’t straighten up. How in the world am I going to deal with her as a teenager if I can’t get a hold of her at 4? Can someone tell me it gets better with out lying to me?
We have now gone through this 2 year in a row. Last year it was chocolate chap stick on the wall and soap all over her, Ephriam, and the bathroom. So maybe it is just the season. Hoping to keep her busy this weekend and see if that helps. I hope that I don’t have to fill every minute of her day for her to behave but we will see.
However if you have suggestions I am willing to take them too.
