Hello, I found this forum while searching about difficult children. I am a single mom of one daughter. she is a smart girl. i love her very much. she can also be mean violent and very disrespectful to me. this is one of those times. she has gone from nice to mean several times today and I am weary of all this. i just feel sad and like crying right now. i am pre menstraul and it is a hard time for me to be handling a child threatening to throw things at me and being mean.
