Her “Little” Attitude is Driving Me Nutty–Mom’s Please Help!
For the first 5 years I had a Mommy Blog about my daughter Abby’s life and what it was like for me as a first time Mommy. Well now she’s a 7 year old Diva and I’ve decided to bring back the Mommy Blog. Her life and what she does is just so funny, it’s too funny not to talk about or write about! It’s time to share our adventures with you again.
What is up with my 7 year old's attitude? Boy do I need your help!
I'm at the point where I've taken everything away from her even her jump rope. We talk all the time and she opens up to me but her little attitude is way bigger then she is. It's her attitude along with her bossiness. When did she become the boss of everybody. She tries with me, but I see it with her friends, too. Man alive, what is a Mom to do? And I think sometimes I'm a total push-over and she knows it! That's my fault!
Don't let this little adorable, precious face fool you!
I was thinking well maybe it's because she's an only child. But we hang with other little girls on the block and pretty much all of them are the same way. It's almost like they all try to be the boss and they're very confident in their thinking. I feel they're so much different then when we grew up. Now confidence is a great thing, but I think I created a monster. My big thing when I knew I was having a daughter was to teach her compassion and confidence. She has both, but I'd like to see the compassion a little bit more sometimes. Abby has a huge personality with different laughs, different hugs and a huge huge heart. I am so proud of her in every way...but what can I do to change this little attitude..the attitude of her saying, "NO".."I don't care"..it's almost teenager like? What's a Mom to do--Please help!
