Hi All, My daughter will be 5 in November. Her Dad and I chose to separate in early May, and I moved to an apartment exactly one month ago. Since then, my sweet girl has completely changed. She isn't even fun to be around anymore She hits and kicks me every time she doesn't get her way. This past week-end was the worst, and I just don't know what to do. She has been doing everything "they" say that kids do during these difficult times; digressing a bit with always wanting to be held, talks like a baby, kicks/hits, cries a lot, trouble with- sleep, etc, etc. But, I don't know what to do. What do I do when she kicks me and won't stop? I was carrying her into her room Saturday, and she was smacking me in the head and wouldn't stop. I put her down, then she grabbed my arm and pinched/scratched (on purpose). I closed her door, and she started throwing books at it (I remember doing that as a kid...) She only does it to me, no one else. Help! Thx.
