I am a single parent of a 4 year old girl and a 5 month old boy. My daughter has refused to go to bed for the past year or so. She won't stay in bed, she won't go to sleep. She has complete meltdowns where she won't do anything I tell her to, no matter what the consequence is. I feel as if I have tried everything! I put her in time out, spanked her, even put her in a corner once. I have told her, if you get up again, I'm taking away all of your toys. (Wasted a lot of money that way.) No matter what the consequence, she doesn't care! Does anyone else have a stubborn, defiant 4 year old girl?? Any advice?
