Teenager at 6 years old

Sometimes I feel like I already have a teenager. I am afraid of when she actually reaches that age.
Princess is 6 1/2 and she has already learned to lie to her parents, she doesn't listen when I ask/tell her to do things. She somehow got the idea that its OK to do what she wants instead of listen to me.
She drives me crazy, its frustrating beyond belief. I feel terrible because I am always yelling these days, I ask her once to do something and she completely ignores me so my instant reaction is to yell.
Hubby and I have caught her lying. I have tried to tell her how wrong it is to lie, but I always feel like everything I say goes in one ear and out the other.

What would you do with a little girl who lies and doesn't listen?

  1. Oh, God, wish I could help. I had a problem with my boys when they were a bit older, and I was able to take priviledges away, such as TV, video games, going out with their friends, etc. Im not really sure what to do with a little one like her. I know that it is really frustrating, I do remember that, and mine were old enough to understand my disappointment. Goodluck.

  2. Hmm... I had a boy child with this ailment... He spent a lot of time in Time Out or without TV - his main form of currency. He is now 17 and a model citizen who hopes to head off to the USNA or to VMI in a year or so. What drives her? What's her favorite thing to do? Take it away... You've go to start now or she'll be a monster when she's 13...
