My Mum and Sister have said to me I'm too hard on her and maybe I'm blaming her because I dislike her mother so much. I know I am hard on her and she does get put into the naughty corner or gets more smacks then the other kids. But my kids wake with a smile everyday and rarely whinge. They are alot quieter and easier to please. They also do as they are told without screaming 'no,I don't want to' everytime they are told to do something or asked to come join in like she does.
When I take her to Playgroup I have at least 1 Mum every week come up to me and say is it really worth the effort, as they can see how disobediant she is. I say yes as I would rather her stress me out of the rest of my life then live a horrible life with her Mother.
I am finding I don't cuddle her nearly as much as my kids and when I look at her I find it hard to feel warm a fuzzy at times, like I do with them. Do you think this is because I'm blaming her for her Mother or is it just because I'm tired and fed up with the constant behaviour. My Hubby tends to let her get away with alot and cuddles her if I rouse at her, so now she runs in to his arms everytime I try to get down on her level and talk to her.
Where do I start so we can all get through this.
I don't want her growing up to hate me for the situation is has been put in.
