Hello. My name is Emily and I am just found this board. I have a 3 and 1/2 year old daughter named Iris. Iris is sweet, smart, funny, and kind. Iris is also oppositional, angry, violent, and generaly diffuclt to deal with. I am a naturally minded gentle parent but I have become increasingly frustrated over the past year or so with her behavior. I am at the end of my rope emotionally, but mor eimpirtantly I need guidance because I feel like I am failing her by not undersatnding or appropriatly dealing with her issues. Thanks for reading I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.
